Short Term (0-2 years)

Current Situation and Critical Success Factor: Currently in the Northeast Cohesive Strategy Region, there is no single entity in place that has the responsibility for coordinating all the wildland fire management organizations, policy direction, and operational activities envisioned under the Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy. There are thousands of organizations with some wildland fire management and response responsibilities at the federal, state, Tribal, and local levels, including volunteer fire departments, and some non-governmental organizations. There are coordinating entities such as the Eastern Area Coordinating Group (EACG) and the four Fire Compacts present in the Northeast whose primary responsibilities are related to response and training needs, but no single wildland fire management oversight or coordination entity exists that includes all aspects of the Cohesive Strategy goals. In order for the Cohesive Strategy to be successful, there must be active participation and coordination among all entities that are involved in delivering and affected by wildland fire management implementation activities in the Northeast.
