NIFC: 2013 National Interagency Mobilization Guide

 The National Interagency Mobilization Guide identifies standard procedures which guide the operations of multi-agency logistical support activity throughout the coordination system.
 This Guide is intended to facilitate interagency dispatch coordination, ensuring the timeliest and cost  effective incident support services available are provided.
  It is designed to accommodate amendments as needed and will be retained as current material until amended. 

Local Mobilization Guides should be used to supplement the National Interagency Mobilization Guide. 
 Geographic Areas will provide NICC two (2) copies of their Mobilization Guide and will 
provide amendments as issued.

 Total Mobility
Positioning and utilizing resources to meet existing and anticipated incident, preparedness, 
 severity, and wildland and prescribed fire needs regardless of geographic location or agency 

 When competition for wildland fire resources occurs among Geographic Areas, the National 
 Multi-Agency Coordination Group (NMAC) at NIFC will establish national priorities and 
 confirm drawdown levels.

Mission Statement
The principal mission of the National Interagency Coordination Center (NICC) at the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) is the cost effective and timely coordination of land management agency successful emergency response for wildland fire.
 As a partner in the National Response Framework (NRF) and as interagency cooperators, we will also meet the requirements of all-hazard incidents as directed by the NRF or Presidential and Secretarial direction. This is accomplished through planning, situation monitoring, and expediting resource orders between the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Areas, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) States, National Association of State Foresters (NASF), Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Regions, Forest Service (FS) Regions, National Park Service (NPS) Regions, National Weather Service (NWS) Regions, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Regions through the United States Fire Administration (USFA) and other cooperating agencies.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
