Wildfire prevention begins with awareness. This map, hosted by ESRI, offers an experimental mashup for interactive tracking of United States wildfires with links to real-time weather and social media uploads.
Explore the “Social” tab to follow current fire updates and shared images. Add a custom Twitter/Flickr search with the hashtag wildfire (#wildfire), or simply search for the name of the fire you’d like to follow. As with any online social media, remember that while some of this information is moderated, much of the information may not be verified.
