With fire season looming, the NFPA’s Wildfire Information page has been subjected to its annual housecleaning. As usual, there was some “link rot.” A few new resources were added and one or two eliminated that simply no longer existed.
Sorry about the website’s inaccessibility for the last week, folks.
We were caught up in a perfect storm of web hosting incompetence, forcing us to pack up and move elsewhere. There may still be a few minor hiccups here and there, but the site should be back on its game now.
The process has been beneficial, if painful. Our new home is more spacious, comfortable and up-to-date. With any luck, we won’t have to go through this again for a long time.
The “Wildfire Information” page is a collection of wildland fire information links, including prescribed burns, applicable to the Flathead and Kootenai National Forests and Glacier National Park. There’s also a group of links for Canadian wildfire information.
And remember . . .
TO REPORT A WILDLAND FIRE – CALL (406) 758-5260 OR CALL 911
First off, the phone numbers for reporting wildfires are now prominently displayed.
Also, the description of the Kalispell Interagency Dispatch Center has been updated to include information on accessing the incident logs — very handy when you want to know why there are trucks and helicopters running around the neighborhood.
