The National Interagency Coordination Center website is designed to provide general fire information for the public and as a source of fire intelligence for the wildland fire community pertaining to wildland fires occurring throughout the country. Various components of the website are updated throughout the day from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (April 1 - September 30).
The NICC website IS NOT a "real-time" website, nor is it designed to be an "incident-specific" website. Although we strive to get information to the site as quickly as we receive it, we completely rely upon the unit or team responsible for managing the fire to provide us with information. The NICC website covers all large fires throughout the nation and is not the "official" website for any individual fire. If you would like immediate or additional information about a particular fire, please contact the agency responsible or the Incident Management Team, if one is assigned. The NICC provides no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy, reliability, timeliness, or completeness of the information furnished.
Fire Weather / Fire Danger Outlooks
The Predictive Services Group at the NICC utilizes the most recent data available to produce daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal Fire Weather / Fire Danger Outlooks. The intent of the Outlooks are to provide fire managers with as much detailed information to assist them in being prepared for the forthcoming period. Although the group adheres to a policy of being as accurate as possible in their Outlooks, the variability in weather can change over a course of time causing the possibility of mis-calculations. Therefore, use of these products is at your discretion.
