National Fire Situation Report

Level 4
Significant mobilization of resources through CIFFC is required to assist operations in the active agencies. Agency priorities need to be considered as a necessary measure to address the demand for shared resources among multiple active agencies. There is a moderate to high probability that drawing down resources from non-active agencies may pose a risk should existing conditions change.
  • Significant wildland fire activity is occurring in one or more agencies, with incident management (IMTs) actively engaged.
  • Demand and mobilization of interagency resources through CIFFC is high.
  • International availability of resources is being investigated.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is such that resource demands are expected to continue or increase.

Shared resources are heavily committed. National mobilization trends affect all Geographic Areas (GA's) and regularly occur over larger and larger distances. National priorities govern resources of all types. Heavy demand on inactive/low activity GA's with low levels of activity for available resources.
  • Significant wildland fire activity is occurring in multiple geographic areas; significant commitment of Incident Management Teams.
  • NICC increasingly engages GACCs in an effort to coordinate and fill orders for available resources.
  • Potential for significant incidents emerging in multiple GA’s indicates that resource demands will continue or increase.
