Fire Information

When a fire is really kicking, firefighters and managers are very busy, and rarely find the time to communicate about the fire to media, residents, and curious onlookers. Enter: Fire Information. A PIO's (Public Information Officer) primary responsibility is to communicate, relaying information about wildland fire activity, prevention, response, and suppression activities. Whether speaking about a specific incident or wildland fire in general, PIO's are constantly transmitting information acting as a liaison for the media, the public, and the fire and land managers.
