The Northwest Coordination Center - NWCC is continuing to pull together fire information during incidents for fire season 2010 to provide decision support to the Multi Agency Coordination Group MAC, Operations, Intell, and Public Affairs Departments. This information will also be made available to our National Fire Information partners such as NIFC and GEOMAC. A link to the daily data will be provided at ftp://ftp.nifc.gov/Incident_Specific_Data/PACIFIC_NW/!NWCC_INFO/DAILY_FIRE_DATA/.
Each day NWCC will provide a compiled .shp file and .kml file.
At the FTP site ftp.nifc.gov a folder under ftp://ftp.nifc.gov/Incident_Specific_Data/PACIFIC_NW/ has been created to place all incident information within Oregon and Washington States. Under ftp://ftp.nifc.gov/Incident_Specific_Data/PACIFIC_NW/ please create a folder with your incident name 2010_FireName to deposit perimeters, graphics, maps, etc. related to your incident.
