The Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre (CIFFC) distributes information about forest fires in Canada.
This year, CIFFC has mobilized to the United States over 1300 Canadian personnel, 300 MK 3 pump kits, 625 sprinkler heads and various equipment. All Canadian personnel have completed their various assignment in the USA and have returned to their home bases. This has been the largest Canadian mobilization into the USA in recorded history (for detailed information see the Canadian Daily Fire Situation Report).
