Forest Service Active Wildfire Mapping - Drought Info

Well, fire season is upon us. Hard to believe that we had snow and freezing weather just a few weeks ago here in the Sierra-Cascades. Now there are red flag warning over most of Northern California. Dry thunderstorms with lightning forecast this evening and Monday.

The Forest Service Remote Sensing Center provides Active Wildfire Mapping showing wildfires in the U.S. in real-time. They also provide Inciweb for more detailed information and updates on current and recent fires.

I've also provided links to a U.S. drought monitor.

Learn more about wildfires and drought in the U.S.

Stay Safe!

P.S. Last year I bought an older pumper fire truck from a local fire department. Last 3 days have been spent getting it all in top shape for the season - better safe than sorry.
