  1. Who can direct me to a news article about the US Forest Service assisting the Republik of Indonesia fighting forest fires and looking for a temporary Indonesian translator. I’m an Indonesian translator and works with the Indonesian government before.

  2. Where can the public gain access to the lightning strike/precipitation map. I looked on the NIFC website, but could not find this map.
