MS Forestry Commission Announces New Wildfire Reporting Phone Number

Jackson, MS, April 11, 2018 --( The Mississippi Forestry Commission (MFC) has a new wildfire reporting phone number for the public to call in Mississippi: 1-833-MFC-FIRE (1-833-632-3473). Previously, numbers were broken down by geographic areas of the state. The new wildfire reporting number will allow the public to quickly report wildfires statewide to the Mississippi Forestry Commission’s Central Dispatch Center, which will dispatch the necessary wildfire suppression resources to the appropriate location.

“We are very excited to announce our new wildfire reporting number,” said Randy Giachelli, Fire Chief, Mississippi Forestry Commission. “Having one easy-to-remember phone number will streamline the wildfire reporting process for the public. The same number can also be used to obtain a burning permit anywhere in Mississippi.”
