"The Commander, US Northern Command (CDRUSNORTHCOM) provides Title 10 resources, and coordinates with the National Guard (NG) Title 32 forces, to the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) in support of Wildland Firefighting (WFF) operations in the continental United States (CONUS), the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Alaska (AK). […] NIFC coordinates the federal response to wildland fires and support to other disasters and is the nation's logistical and support center. NIFC is a consortium of federal agencies consisting of the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) US Forest Service (USFS), Department of the Interior members including the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), National Park Service (NPS), National Weather Service (NWS), and Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS), it also includes the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), and National Association of State Foresters (NASF). NIFC relies on civilian land and aerial firefighting capability as a primary means of support and requests DOD assistance when additional support is needed. NG, Reserve, and Active Duty forces have historically provided firefighting support when requested."
