National Fire Situation Report

Aug 4, 2022 2:59pm, CT
Level 3
Increased mobilization of resources through CIFFC is required to support operations in the active agencies. Agency priorities may need to be considered as a necessary measure to address the demand for shared resources among multiple active agencies. There is a moderate 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 moderate to high.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is normal for time of year.
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.

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.
