National Fire Situation Report

Aug 18, 2022 2:58pm, CT
Level 2
Active agencies are unable to independently accomplish incident management objectives without some support. Resource capability remains stable enough nationally to sustain incident operations and meet objectives in active agencies. There is a low probability that drawing down resources from non-active agencies may pose a risk should existing conditions change.
  • Wildland fire activity is increasing in one or more agencies.
  • Resources within most agencies are adequate to manage their current situation, with light to moderate demand and mobilization of resources occurring through CIFFC.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is normal to below normal for the time of year.
Data provided based on information collected from agencies. Accuracy varies based on individual agency practices, but is typically considered to be rough estimates for daily operations. Final quality control is performed post-season and compiled in other publications.

AgencyOperational Summary
BCInitial attack workload with successful initial fire suppression. Most fires staying within Initial Attack with few fires moving to expanded attack. Anticipating further starts over next 3-5 days.
YTAirtanker contracts have finished for the season. Crewmembers are also finished. Some crewleaders remain. Overall drying trend (especially in the south) with a series of weak troughs over the coming days. Attention shifting to prescribed burning. All active fires are in a monitoring status. Flood topic still active with a High Water Advisory in effect for the Whitehorse area.
For current year from January 1.

Mobilization of resources nationally is required to sustain incident management operations in the active Geographic Areas (GA's). National priorities established as a necessary measure to address the heavy and persistent demand for shared resources among active GA's.
  • Significant wildland fire activity is occurring in multiple geographic areas, with Incident Management Teams (IMTs) actively engaged.
  • Mobilization of resources through the National Interagency Coordination Center is moderate to heavy.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is normal for the time of year.
