2014 Wildland Fire Information Gathering
AKFireInfo (http://akfireinfo.com/) is up and running to provide you with interagency fire information for Alaska. It goes hand-in-hand with http://fire.ak.blm.gov/newsroom.php. The Alaska Interagency Coordination Center website (http://fire.ak.blm.gov) is a valuable source for information such as maps, weather updates, outlooks and much more.
http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/ (Inciweb) continues to be the primary source for large, ongoing fire incidents.
DOF will use Facebook and Twitter (http://www.facebook.com/AK.Forestry & http://twitter.com/ak_forestry) as tools to direct you to the most current fire information resources - such as AKFireInfo, Inciweb, or a Public Information Officer assigned to a fire.
If you have additional questions, please call the Alaska Division of Forestry/BLM Alaska Fire Service combined Wildland Fire Information Office at 907-356-5511. You can reach the Alaska Division of Forestry Information Officer directly at 907-356-5512.
