The National Significant Wildland Fire Potential Outlook for December 2021 – March 2022 is now available. In November significant fire activity remained minimal and year-to-date the number of fires and acres burned remain ... below their respective 10-year averages. Yet, more than 90% of the West is in drought, with almost half of the West in the highest two categories of drought. Most of the country had below average precipitation. #FireYear2021, #FireYear2022
Hotshot crew, engines, EMTs, or the incident commander, the patrons around the #DarleneFire LOVE everyone! #ThankAFirefighter
During the #TamarackFire near Carson City, NV, #FirefightingResources were not the only ones receiving thanks. Utility workers also got a shout out during the incident. Efforts to #ThankAFirefighter were far reaching during ... #FireYear2021!
Great to see Ely, Minnesota during the #DeltaFire! The local movie theater gave a shout out and posted a #ThankAFirefighter message. #FireYear2021
A little love raised high in Troy, Montana as they #ThankAFirefighter with a banner hanging across the street near the #SouthYaakFire and #BurntPeakFire in #FireYear2021.
A simple hand-crafted poster to #ThankAFirefighter is a gesture that comes from the heart. The #VardenFire has a thoughtful artist in their community. #FireYear2021
This #ThankAFirefighter sign from the #TamarackFire may be small but sure is mighty! #FireYear2021
A #ThankAFirefighter message could be anywhere and just like on the #JackFire a local business used their portable message board to show their thanks. #FireYear2021

Welcome to the Nation's Logistical Support Center

Support Center

The nation’s federal wildland fire community is a large and complex organization across the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs; and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service. These agencies manage wildland fire on nearly 700 million acres of federal public land, or one-fifth of the total land area in the United States. 

NIFC is home to the national fire management programs of each federal fire agency, along with partners including the National Association of State Foresters, the U.S. Fire Administration, and the National Weather Service. A Department of Defense liaison was added as a permanent partner at NIFC in 2008. Working together, these partners provide leadership, policy oversight and coordination to manage the nation’s wildland fire programs.

In recent years, the role of the agencies at NIFC has grown to include all types of fire management, including hazardous fuels treatments, integrated fire and land-use planning, and more. Fire management under this larger umbrella is designed to achieve not only suppression goals, but to accomplish a broad spectrum of natural resource objectives, and do so in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
