Sep 16, 2020 3:33pm, CT
The September 16 report is the last to be published for the 2020 season.
Level 1
Agencies accomplish incident management objectives utilizing local resources with little or no CIFFC support. There is little risk of drawing down capability in the agencies to support incident operations.
  • Conditions are not favorable to support significant wildland fire activity in most agencies.
  • Resource capability is adequate with little or no mobilization of resources occurring through CIFFC.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is expected to remain minimal.

National mobilization is heavily committed and measures need to be taken to support GA's. Active GA's must take emergency measures to sustain incident operations.
  • Full commitment of national resources is ongoing.
  • Resource orders filled at NICC by specifically coordinating requests with GACCs as resources become available.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is high and expected to remain high in multiple geographic areas.
