Great Plains Interstate Fire Compact


 Colorado - North Dakota - South Dakota - Wyoming




Enabling Legislation       Operating Plan        Training Opportunities       Fire Prevention       Compact Links     



As a result of 5 years of drought starting in 2000, and a need for the Great Plains states to better share resources and information during peak fire season, the Great Plains Interstate Fire Compact was formed.  The first three states to join the compact were Colorado, South Dakota and Wyoming.  Their legislatures passed enabling legislation during the 2006 sessions.  Fire compact member states will include Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.  Compact member states have air assets, engines, handcrews, dozers and an incident management team available to assist each other.
