SETTING UP THE FTP PROGRAM
- GACC INCIDENT AND SECURE GACC SUPPORT FOLDERS
- GACC INCIDENT FOLDER
- The "GACC Incident" folder is a public facing folder. One can DOWNLOAD/VIEW incident GIS files, Infrared data, and other incident related products from this folder, but one cannot upload to this folder. See link to the right under "National."
- To UPLOAD incident data to the "GACC Incident" folder, an iNAP account and an FTP program are required.
- GACC SUPPORT FOLDER
- The "GACC Support" folder is not a public facing folder. It is intended for products considered sensitive for viewing. This would include Incident Action Plans (IAP).
- To UPLOAD and/or DOWNLOAD/VIEW files in this folder, an iNAP account and an FTP program are required.
If it is decided to post the IAP's in the "GACC Incident" folder, the IAP document must be password protected.
(See NMAC Letter of August 14, 2007 | Implementation of IAP via FTP Site).

- FTP.NIFC.GOV is a file server for sharing interagency wildland fire incident data and documents between incident responders and supporting personnel. It is an interagency government system, and as such is subject to IT security regulations, rules, and guidelines. This service is intended for short-term interagency sharing, not as a file archive or records repository. Files should not be placed here with any expectation of longevity.
- As the site is developed, automated cleaning of files may be implemented with notice given through the change management site. Write and read access is available to authorized users using FTP over SSL. Read access to controlled folders will also be available over to authorized users with valid login credentials over the web using HTTPS. Read access to a specific subset of publicly-viewable folders folders is available with no password over the web using HTTP.
