Fire Weather and Wildfire Potential, Risk and Incident Maps

Online Fire Weather and Wildfire Maps:

U.S. Forest Service Remote Sensing Applications Center Active Fire Mapping Program

National Interagency Airspace Restricted Airspace Information Maps

The Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination Group or GeoMAC, is an internet-based mapping application originally designed for fire managers to access online maps of current fire locations and perimeters in the conterminous 48 States and Alaska.

The Northwest Interagency Coordination Center serves as the northwest area geographic focal point to provide logistical support and intelligence relative to anticipated and ongoing wildfire activity for all federal and cooperating state wildland fire suppression agencies.

Geographic Area Coordination Center - The GACG's mission is to provide leadership and support not only for wildland fire emergencies, but to other emergency incidents (i.e. earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc), as necessary.

National Fire Weather Maps - A key component to the new national fire weather page is its interactive map that allows you to examine critical fire weather information at the national level initially, but quickly provide you access to local and regional fire weather data as well.

The Wildland Fire Assessment System was developed by the Fire Behavior unit at the Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, Montana.
