National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC)


The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC), located in Boise, Idaho, is the nation’s support center for wildland firefighting. Eight different agencies and organizations are part of NIFC. Decisions are made using the interagency cooperation concept because NIFC has no single director or manager.

The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) website has many links and resources for those looking for information on Wildland Fire and fire aviation policy, training, handbooks and manuals, dispatch, fire information, fire programs, and fire and fire aviation safety. A sample of those resources are listed below, but for a full list, visit the NIFC website.

The National Park Service Division of Fire and Aviation Management branches of Wildland Fire, Aviation, and Structural Fire are located at NIFC.
