Fire Info

(For Fire Season 2013): As we progress through fire season, we thought it important to let you 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 and the AICC Morning Highlights are useful documents with which to begin. The link to the Morning Highlights is the same but the design and name has been changed to Wildland Fire Updates. The updates may now occur throughout the day depending on fire activity. There are very useful features and links on the AICC page menu as well: Interagency newsroom, intelligence/reports, maps, fire weather, etc. 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, AICC organizations are using social media:
