Very high or extreme fire danger exists throughout the Compact area. Compact resources are exhausted or significant delays are experienced in receiving requested Compact resources. Traditional control methods are ineffective. Extreme burning conditions prevail. High to extreme fire danger is expected to continue or increase over the next 48 to 72 hours and consideration is given to the EA preparedness level.
Coordinate public information among agencies on a Compact scale. Resources are not mobilized outside the Compact area. Continue MAC Group activity with daily conference calls and consider physical assembly of the MAC Group.
Consider assistance from applicable US Federal and Canadian agencies such as US Forest Service, FEMA and Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Center (CIFFC). Examples include an Area Command Team, large air tankers, pre-positioning of resources.
