  • Full commitment of national resources is ongoing.
  • Demand for interagency resources through CIFFC is extreme.
  • National availability of resources is limited, international resources are being mobilized.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is high to extreme and expected to remain so in one or multiple agencies.
