Jul 18, 2021 3:24pm, CT
Level 5
National mobilization is heavily committed and increased measures need to be taken to support agencies. Active agencies may take emergency measures to sustain incident operations. Inactive/low activity agencies are at drawdown levels.
  • 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.
Data provided based on information collected from agencies. Accuracy varies based on individual agency practices, but is typically considered to be rough estimates for daily operations. Final quality control is performed post-season and compiled in other publications.

AgencyOperational Summary
BCA cold low near Haida Gwaii remains quasi-stationary until late Tuesday night when it finally begins moving toward the BC coast. Weak waves that are difficult to model will carry-on rotating around the low through the Cariboo, Northwest, and PG FCs. Dry light to moderate southwest flow persists across the southern half of the province with little change in airmass, temperatures and RHs.

For current year from January 1.

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.
