Fire Information

When fires start on the Salmon-Challis National Forest, the Forest notifies the public via the Salmon-Challis National Forest Facebook and Salmon-Challis National Forest Twitter accounts as soon as information is available.  Fire information for fire season 2021 is listed below the Inciweb Incident Map. 
 
Inciweb is great tool for researching large current incidents.  Inciweb is an interagency all-risk incident information management system. Incidents on InciWeb are typically wildland fires, but the site will also host incidents when responding to natural disaster cleanup, search and rescue/recovery efforts, hurricane/tornado recovery or assisting other countries with manmade or natural disasters.  This site serves as a single source of incident related information and is managed by Incident Management Teams or local public information officers.

The map above is produced by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group and is hosted on the National Fire Situational Awareness page, where users may access the map in a full browser view. Additional incident specific information may also be accessed at InciWeb.

The most common misconception of wildfire is that all fire is bad. But there are important benefits that smaller and more frequent fires offer to the environment. Matt Jolly, an ecologist at the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station, talks about the natural and important role of fire in maintaining a healthy ecosystem.

 

Drones are dangerous if flown near wildfires. Drones can interfere with wildland fire air traffic that are necessary to suppress wildland fires. If drones are spotted near a wildfire, firefighting aircraft may have to land due to safety concerns.  Learn more at http://www.nifc.gov/drones
