Federal Government

A CAL FIRE Engine crew works with a USFS fire engineThe largest of CAL FIRE's cooperative programs involves an agreement for the exchange of fire protection services with federal wildland fire agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and National Parks Service (NPS). The goal is to have the closest agency respond to a wildfire, regardless of jurisdiction. Through this cooperative relationship, California is able to access federal and state resources throughout the United States to help in times of disaster, when Department resources are depleted. In turn, CAL FIRE provides assistance, through interstate compact agreements to the Federal and other state wildfire agencies throughout the nation.
