COVID-19 and Wildland Fire Management

All wildland fire agencies remain committed to wildland fire readiness through active hiring of fire personnel, adjusting training practices to minimize contact and slow COVID-19 spread potential, and assessing prescribed burning operations. All wildland firefighting partners are working together to plan for fire activity during COVID-19.

To further ensure the highest degree of readiness, the National Multi-Agency Coordinating Group requested three regional Area Command Teams to work with partners at all levels in the fire community to develop protocols for wildfire response during the COVID-19 pandemic. These Wildland Fire Response Plans, linked below, are available to all incident management teams and fire units to help guide effective wildfire response.

The safety of the public and all wildland fire responders is always the number one priority for all wildland fire agencies.
