USING THE FTP.NIFC.GOV 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.
