On July 30, 2015, a firefighter was fatally injured on the Frog fire near Alturas, California, USA. We extend condolences to family and friends of the deceased.
National Preparedness Level: Level 3
Description: Some Agencies have Moderate to High wildland fire hazard and load with a high potential for increased fire load. Two or more Agencies are experiencing wildland fire activities requiring the increase in the mobilization of interagency resources through CIFFC. Incident Management Teams and Type 1 initial attack crews have been mobilized and committed. National resource levels remain generally adequate to meet occurring and anticipated wildland fire activity.
