Tanana Fire Management Zone Office

This Zone encompasses approximately 44.3 million acres in the northern middle section of Alaska in between the Galena and Upper Yukon zones. The Zone stretches from the North Slope south to Denali National Park and west of the Dalton Highway to the Colville and Koyukuk rivers. The Tanana Zone Coordination Unit, which operates out of BLM AFS facilities on Fort Wainwright, is the coordination center for the Upper Yukon, Tanana and Military Zones. This unit dispatches tactical suppression resources and provides logistical support within the Zones, works closely with the Alaska Interagency Coordination Center to fill orders for resources, and compiles intelligence and disseminates reports pertaining to incident status, resource availability, weather, and fire danger forecasting on a daily and annual basis.
