Fire activity continues to be light throughout the Southwest Area, with no new fires and no new acres reported by SWA dispatch centers for yesterday. No open ICS-209 incidents in the system at this time. SWA Preparedness Level is at PL-1.
No new prescribed fire and no new acres were reported for yesterday. As of this report, two prescribed fires (Moquitch 2 Rx, Kaibab NF and Los Griegos Piles, Santa Fe NF) reported planned for today.
Forecasted fire danger for today is in the low range throughout much of the Area. ERC values trending low (i.e. below the 50th percentile) for all predictive service areas. Through the next 7-Day period, seasonably moist weather will continue with temperatures at or below average across the Area. Overall, expect initial attack and/or significant fire activity potential to remain low for today. Potential for all-hazard work due to possible flooding and significant water damage over the next several days, especially southern half of Arizona and New Mexico.
Resources assigned to activities in the Southwest Area include 7 engines and 39 personnel (overhead / support). We have no air tankers, T1 helicopters, nor Type 1 crews available in the Southwest today, however, we do have available 2 Type 1 IMT's, 1 Type 2 IMT, and over 200 T2-T6 engines. Fifteen SWA Type 1 crews have ended their season.
Nationally, fire activity reporting for yesterday was light with 50 new fires and eight new large fire reported. Four Type 1 IMT's and seven Type 2 IMT committed with 4 in Northern California, 5 in the Northwest, and 2 in Southern California. National Preparedness Level is at PL-2.
Southwest Area continues to provide resources to other Geographic Areas, including 1 Air Attack, 5 helicopters, 4 Type 1 crews, 13 Type 2IA crews, 23 engines, and 282 overhead / support personnel. Overall, expect continued minimal resource ordering for SWA resources to other Geographic Areas for today.
