The Sierra Wildland Fire Reporting System serves as a portal for information fire managers to collaborate and better understand smoke impacts across multi-agency landscapes.

A primary function of this system is providing real-time air quality information to the California Air Quality Advisory Board during prescribed-burn operations. The current site has web links to cameras located throughout the area which are used to view the smoke conditions.

Links to Real-Time Smoke Monitoring sites using Beta Attenuation Mass monitors (BAMs) are provided. BAMs measure particulates in the air, specifically smoke. Each monitor can measure either or both 2.5 and 10 micron particulates depending on the filters used. The BAMs web site is updated hourly with 5-minute averages from the operating site.
