Where to Get Information on Wildfire

Local government officials should always be your local point of contact for information about a wildfire. If your community experiences a wildfire large enough that an incident management team fire camp has been established, you may also obtain information and updates from the incident’s Information Office. Generally, contact information for that office will be posted at nmfireinfo.com, inciweb.nwcg.gov or by calling the main office for the state or federal agency that has jurisdiction on the land where the fire is occurring.

More information on wildfires happening in the US can be found at www.inciweb.gov, and for New Mexico at http://nmfireinfo.com/. You can sign up to receive New Mexico State Forestry’s wildfire alert emails for timely updates about wildfires burning on private and state lands. Some county offices of homeland security and emergency management offer a free cell phone text alert service.
