- Fire Data Disks – Forest Service & BLM Lands
Base GIS data in support of an incident is best obtained from the land management unit where the incident is occurring. As a pilot project, each Forest and each BLM District Office has loaded base data on a removable disk for ease of transfer. A contact list of names can be obtained by calling the NWCC office 503-808-2741.
