Welcome to a collection of resources that I've put together. Many of these come in handy during fire season to track what's happening in as close to real-time as possible. Those bookmarks with the red background I consider the most important and my go-to when I need to collect as much information as I can quickly. The bookmarks with the green background are secondary resources that I also consider important.
