Photo of the Week: 50 years of the NIFC
Calling all fire photographers: FireRescue1 wants to see your pictures! The next time you come across something inspiring, take out the camera and submit it to FireRescue1! Just remember to include your name, agency information and brief background information on the picture.
This week's Photo of the Week highlights moments in the National Interagency Fire Center's history during its 50th anniversary. This week, the NIFC shared facts and photographs about its half-century of operations using the hashtag #NIFC50 on social media, leading up to the anniversary of its dedication on July 25.
Some examples include its partnerships with the National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of Defense, U.S. Fire Administration and National Association of State Foresters, the 1988 Yellowstone National Park fires that spurred major changes in fire safety and fire management principles, and its recent assistance during the Australian brush fires of 2019-2020.
