InciWeb is an interagency all-risk incident information management system available to all audiences. The system was developed with two primary missions:
- Provide the public a single source of incident related information
- Provide a standardized reporting tool for the Public Affairs community
InciWeb is primarily used for wildland and prescribed fires, and restoration efforts from wildland fires. Incident information available is an incident’s severity, growth potential, location, contacts, and closure/evacuation information. Also available are news releases, announcements, maps, photos, and videos.
As of October 26, 2022, InciWeb received an update which includes improvements to security, visuals, a transition to a new hosting environment (www.inciweb.wildfire.gov), 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.
The following new InciWeb Drupal Administrative Manual (October 2022 version) has been produced to assist InciWeb Administrators with successfully navigating and posting incident content.
The following eleven training videos have been produced to assist InciWeb Administrators with successfully navigating and posting incident information:
