The NECC is located at the White Mountain National Forest Headquarters in Campton, New Hampshire. The center operates under a signed cooperative agreement between the Northeastern Forest Fire Protection Compact (NFFPC), the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the National Park Service.
The coordination center is staffed by three dispatchers. One year around Center Manager position is provided by White and Green Mountain National Forests, one seasonal dispatcher is provided by the U.S. National Park Service and the Northeast Compact members fund a seasonal dispatcher that is hosted by the State of New Hampshire. The Bureau of Indian Affairs and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service support the center by providing annual operational funds.
In addition to serving the NFFPC area for local wildland fire mobilization needs, the NECC serves as a sub-regional coordination center to the Eastern Area Coordination Center (EACC) located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. EACC has interagency mobilization and coordination responsibility for the federal agencies and states within the 20 northeastern states geographic area.
