New & Improved Inciweb

Getting ready for the 2018 fire season? Beside weed whacking and brush clearance, you might want to bookmark this site – of course, it is on my blog in the right column, also. It is really cool. Go check it out BEFORE you need it. There is a wildfire in Shasta/Trinity called the Grape. Only a couple hundred acres and 30% contained, but this will show you what the site is like!

Use the map or search bar to locate wildland fire and other natural resource incidents. Click a marker on the map and use the “Go to Incident” button for detailed information. From the incident page you can access announcements, closures, news, maps, and photographs from the menu below the map (on mobile phones tap the menu button).

The redesigned site has a modern layout and can be viewed from your phone, computer, or tablet.
