Wildfire Monitoring and Alerts

The Incident Information System is an inter-agency all-risk incident information management system established in 1976 through a Memorandum of Understanding between the Department of Agriculture and the Department of the Interior.

Inciweb delivers detailed information on wildfires across the nation in a user friendly format.

The Idaho Fire Map is another excellent source for information on current wildfires. Use the Layer List to add detail.

Summer in the northwest now includes smoke from wildfires that can be hazardous to our health. AirNow is your source for reliable real time air quality monitoring.
