InciWeb Wildfire Information:
InciWeb is an interagency incident management system run by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group. InciWeb collects wildfire incident data from several agencies across the United States and provides all of this data together in several feeds. Firesource presents wildfire incidents reported by InciWeb in real time, providing the fires location and detailed status. Learn more about InciWeb at their website: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/
Allowing app users to report a fire and immediately inform other users is an essential aspect of Firesource. To report a fire, press the red + button in the top right corner of the map, select the type of fire (vehicle fire, forest fire, terrain fire, structure fire), take a photo of the fire, and press submit. To ensure the validity of fire reports, the user must take a photo of the fire and cannot access Camera Roll to select a picture. Please note that submitting a fire report automatically creates the report at the users location, to further ensure that the fire is local and valid. When viewing user-reported fires in the feed, other users can rate the fire report by confirming that it is active, contained, or a spam reporting.
