InciWeb is an interagency all-risk incident information management system available to all audiences. The system was developed with two primary missions:

  1. Provide the public a single source of incident related information.
  2. Provide a standardized reporting tool for the Public Affairs community.

InciWeb is primarily used for keeping the public and media up to date on wildland fires. However, InciWeb can also be used as a source of information for prescribed fires, burned area restoration, and other natural and human cause incidents.

On October 26, 2022, InciWeb received an update which includes improvements to security, visuals, a transition to a new hosting environment (, and a new content management system called Drupal. These upgrades improve the administrator’s experience with the platform while maintaining the current features and functionality of the public user experience.
