National Preparedness Level raised

Due to a significant increase in fire activity in multiple geographic areas, as well as increased competition for shared resources, the National Preparedness Level has now been elevated to Preparedness Level 4. Altogether, there are five preparedness levels, with the final level being more cataclysmic.

In the last 20 years, 2002, 2008, and 2012 are the only previous fire years when the National Preparedness Level has been increased to Preparedness Level 4 in the month of the June. Since 1990, this year is the second earliest the country has reached that level. Fire Danger in the Teton Interagency Fire region and Yellowstone National Park currently is considered high.
