National Fire Situation Report

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.

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.
