About this app

Introducing Fires Near Me Australia - a comprehensive tool for staying aware of bush fire threats across the nation using information sourced directly from fire and emergency services.

We've made several new enhancements, including:

- Australian Warnings System: All warnings are displayed using the Australian Warning System of Advice, Watch and Act, and Emergency Warning, meaning no matter where you live or travel, you have a consistent experience.
- Interactive Maps: You can see where fires are happening and their current status on a dynamic map of Australia.
- Incident Updates: We use data sourced directly from fire and emergency services to show bush fires across all states and territories, to help you with decision-making and travel planning.
- Personalised Alerts & Notifications: Now, it's easy to set up, modify, and save Watch Zones, tailoring alerts for regions you value most and receive updates and warnings instantly on your device.
- Share Information: Share warnings instantly via text message, social media, email, or other channels.

Our team is continuously working to refine and expand the app's features. Stay connected for future updates as we broaden the scope of covered hazards.

This app has been developed by the NSW Rural Fire Service with the support and assistance of fire and emergency services across Australia.

Great looking and functioning app, but 3 things I'd like to see. * ability to set up watch zones (eg 5km radius from both home and current location), * ability to filter list view by state, and * only active incidents displayed. This is the best alternative to the old EmergencyAUS app, those 3 functions would make it the perfect alternative.

Scale bar needed (approximated to a sensible number as magnification changes)!!! Simplified version of the Hazards Australia app, e.g. without watch zones, but colouring of icons more clear for warning type (advice, emergency warning etc.). Only one click to receive all the fire details, which is inconsistent with Hazards Australia. What they should both do is: after the 1st icon click, show you fire status (controlled or not) and fire size in a small pop-up, and then the rest after 2nd click.
