National Fire Situation Report

Jun 21, 2020 2:59pm, 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.

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.
