Disclaimers and Important Notices Regarding this Website
 
DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
This is a United States Government web site produced and maintained by the Northern Rockies Coordination Center (NRCC). Information presented on this website is public domain and may be distributed or copied freely. Use of appropriate byline, photo or image credits is requested. The NRCC website is designed to provide general fire information for the public and as a source of fire intelligence for the wildland fire community pertaining to wildland fires occurring in Montana, North Dakota, northern Idaho, and Yellowstone National Park. Various components of the website are updated throughout the day from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (April 1 - September 30).
 
This website IS NOT a "real-time" website, nor is it designed to be an "incident-specific" website. Although we strive to get information to the site as quickly as we receive it, we completely rely upon the unit or team responsible for managing the fire to provide us with information. The NRCC website covers all large fires throughout the Northern Rockies Geographic Area and is not the "official" website for any individual fire. The NRCC provides no warranty, expressed or implied, as to accuracy, reliability, timeliness, or completeness of the information furnished.
 
The Predictive Services Group at the Northern Rockies Coordination Center utilizes the most recent data available to produce daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal Fire Weather / Fire Danger Outlooks. The intent of the Outlooks are to provide fire managers with as much detailed information to assist them in being prepared for the forthcoming period. Although the Group adheres to a policy of being as accurate as possible in their Outlooks, the variability in weather can change over a course of time causing the possibility of mis-calculations. Therefore, use of these products is at your discretion.

Example of Information Collected from this web site for Statistical Purposes
 
Below is an example of the information collected based on a standard request for a World Wide Web document.

xxx.yyy.com - - [ 28/Jan/1997: 00:00:01 -0500] "GET /news/nr012797.html HTTP/1.0" 200 16704 Mozilla 3.0/www.altavista.digital.com

xxx.yyy.com (or 123.123.23.12) -- this is the host name (or IP address) associated with the requester (you as the visitor). In this case, (.com) the requester is coming from a commercial address. Depending on the requester's method of network connection, the host name (or IP address) may or may not identify a specific computer. Connections via many Internet Service Providers assign different IP addresses for each session, so the host name identifies only the ISP. The host name (or IP address) will identify a specific computer if that computer has a fixed IP address.

[ 28/Jan/1997: 00:00:01 -0500] -- this is the date and time of the request

"GET /news/nr012797.html HTTP/1.0" -- this is the location of the requested file on the web server 200 -- this is the status code - 200 is OK - the request was filled

16704 -- this is the size of the requested file in bytes

Mozilla 3.0 -- this identifies the type of browser software used to access the page, which indicates what design parameters to use in constructing the pages

www.altavista.digital.com - this indicates the last site the person visited, which indicates how people find our site

Requests for other types of documents use similar information. No personally-identifying information is collected.
