The Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre Inc. (CIFFC) was opened in 1982 with a mandate to provide operational forest fire management services to Member Agencies. CIFFC coordinates the flow of information and resources across all the parties involved in forest fire response and management. In 2014, the centre reported 4,879 fires.
During fire season, CIFFC operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, disseminating critical information and intelligence on the fire situation to all member agencies. They are also responsible for identifying available resources and moving them where needed – everything from aircraft and personnel to communication networks. A robust, reliable network is absolutely essential in CIFFC’s service delivery. Downtime is simply not an option.
