      The daily National Incident Management Situation Report, which
      covers wildland fires across the USA (see below for a sample) is
      available free via e-mail subscription from the Center for
      International Disaster Information. I've been getting these for
      several years and find them interesting.

      Here's a sample:


      INCIDENT MANAGEMENT SITUATION REPORT
      THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 2005 - 0530 MDT
      NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS LEVEL 1


      CURRENT SITUATION:

      Initial attack activity was light nationally with 54 new fires
      reported.
      No new large fires were reported. Very high to extreme fire indices
      were reported in Arizona, Colorado and Kansas.



      ALASKA AREA INCIDENTS / LARGE FIRES:

      PILOT POINT, Southwest Area Forestry. This fire is four miles
      northeast of
      Pilot Point, AK in brush and tundra. Pilot Point airport was closed.
      Bird
      nesting grounds remain threatened. High southerly winds are
      hampering
      containment efforts. Running, torching and backing fire were
      observed.

      DOT LAKE, Tok Area Forestry. This fire is 50 miles northwest of Tok,
      AK in
      black spruce, mixed hardwoods, and brush. The community of Dot Lake
      remains threatened. Fire behavior continued to creep and smolder.

      OUTLOOK:

      Weather Discussion: A trough of low pressure across the northern
      Rockies
      and Great Basin will bring an increase in winds and lower humidity
      to
      parts of the Southwest. In Alaska, a weak trough of low pressure
      stretching east to west across the interior will continue to be the
      focus
      for cloud cover, though relative humidity will be lower on Thursday
      as
      showers become less widespread.
