The FWAC Mission

The Fire, Weather & Avalanche Center's (FWAC) mission as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is to build user-friendly products for the public—with an emphasis on the backcountry. We are currently building new tools all the time, but could always use support from you to bring these features to life!

Exclusive Partner

We've partnered with Seattle-based True North Gear, LLC. to provide the FWAC Wildfire Map and additional tools for the public and the public safety industry. True North® makes a variety of high-quality firefighting gear and they support the same industries and communities that we do!

SnøCams: Backcountry Webcam Network

We partner with some premier recreation organizations in the region to provide our backcountry webcams. These locations are usually remote and present difficult technical challenges to overcome.
