Fire Info

During fire season, it is important to know where to find wildland fire information. The Alaska Interagency Coordination Center (AICC) is the primary location to find wildland fire information. The AICC Situation Report is a useful document with which to begin. There are very useful features and links on the AICC page menu as well: Interagency newsroom, intelligence/reports, maps, fire weather, etc.

A new interagency blog (weblog) site has been developed to provide additional Alaska wildland fire information: http://akfireinfo.com. Updates may now occur throughout the day depending on fire activity. Email will also be used to provide news releases and other time sensitive information.

In order to provide a wider range of options to present wildland fire information, interagency partners

are using social media:
