ABOUT US
 

The National Interagency Coordination Center is the focal point for overseeing all interagency coordination activities throughout the United States.

Wildfire suppression is built on a three-tiered system of support - the local area, one of the 10 geographic areas, and finally, the national level. When a fire is reported, the local agency and its firefighting partners respond. If the fire continues to grow, the agency can ask for help from its geographic area. When a geographic area has exhausted all its resources, it can turn to NICC at the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) for help in locating what is needed, from air tankers to radios to firefighting crews to incident management teams.

National Multi-Agency Coordination Group (NMAC)

The NMAC is comprised of representatives from the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Indian Affairs, National Park Service, Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Federal Emergency Management Administration, and the National Association of State Foresters.

The NMAC group at NIFC prioritizes and allocates resources When there are critical shortages of national resources such as smokejumpers, airtankers, or Type 1 Incident Management Teams (IMTs).
