InciWeb is an interagency all-risk incident web information management system provided by the United States Forest Service released in 2004. It was originally developed for wildland fire emergencies, but can be also used for other emergency incidents (natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes).
It was developed with two primary missions:
- 1. Provide the public a single source of incident related information
- 2. Provide a standardized reporting tool for the Public Affairs community
Official announcements include evacuations, road closures, news releases, maps, photographs, and basic info and current situation about the incident.
Incident information can be accessed by:
- Database server
- Administrative server
- Load balancer for the public content which routes traffic to a pool of eight servers.
InciWeb was having technical difficulties due to the high volume of Internet users trying to access the site during the September–October 2006 Day Fire  and the Summer 2008 California wildfires.
