The Southwest Coordination Center (SWCC) is the interagency focal point for coordinating the mobilization of resources between the twelve Federal and State Dispatch Centers of the Southwest Area and, when necessary, the National Coordination Center in Boise, ID. Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the SWCC mobilizes resources for wildland fire, prescribed fire, and other all-risk incidents. In addition, the Center provides Predictive Services and Intelligence related-products in support of incident management decision-making for wildland fire managers and on-the-ground wildland firefighters.
Please note, the primary audience for the information provided on the SWCC website is the active wildland firefighting community for the purpose of planning and strategical operations. As such, this site is not designed to be the primary general wildland fire information website (see Site Disclaimer) for the Southwest Area. Each state located within the boundaries of the Southwest Area has their own established site, which can be found via the Incident Information page or on the leftside menubar.
