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.
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.

Active Geographic Areas (GA's) are unable to independently accomplish incident management objectives. Resource capability remains stable enough nationally to sustain incident operations and meet objectives in active GA's.
  • Significant wildland fire activity is increasing in a few geographic areas.
  • Resources within most geographic areas are adequate to manage the current situation, with light to moderate mobilization of resources occurring through the National Interagency Coordination Center.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is normal to below normal for the time of year.
