Subject: Fire Information Center Public Contact Information
FYI – We have activated the Boise Fire Information Center at Boise Dispatch Center. If you want/need to refer public calls regarding fire information for Boise fires and/or area fires they can provide information. The phone number is 208-384-3266 or 3268 (actually there are 4 lines and they roll if one is busy). The Center is open from 0730 to 2100 hours.
In addition, keep in mind the national information site (which the Incident Management Teams post) as a reference for the public. The Incident Management Teams often post updates regarding their fires several times a day.
Last we established a twitter account through the Fire Information Center which is
The Trinity Ridge inciweb site has the fire closure information on it (for the Mountain Home and Idaho City Ranger Districts.
The Boise Dispatch web page has the Fire Restriction Information/map on it.
Feel free to let me know if we are missing something regarding getting fire information and/or area closure information to the public. Many thanks!
