Beats hunting down the website I don't need to know if there is a burn ban unless I am going to build a fire. And when I need to build a fire, I tap this little icon and bang! there's the burn ban status instantly. I hope the promised version 2 will have the option to turn notifications on/off because I don't want to be notified every day there is no ban for my area. Thanks for a simple app that does the job so elegantly.
Need ability to set alerts! The obvious feature needed is an ability to set push alerts by county for burn bans, and the lifting of them, and by what type of ban. Each of these alerts should be fully customizable by type and county. This is a no brainer feature, and really the only one making this useful since no one wants to, or will, check the app periodically for bans!
Horrible Not updated, last update was January 2016, several bans and lefts and rebans since January. Don't waste your time
Works as it should It does the job. I agree with others...if I want to burn, I check the app. Beats calling on the phone by a mile. I don't want a hundred messages clogging up my email or texts every time there's an update, especially when it's not the county I live in. I hope with the new version you can turn off the push feature!!!!
Not reporting any bans. Presently there is a burn ban in every county in Washington State, this app does not reflect any of them. At present this app is useless and dangerous.
VERY MISSLEADING You only get half the story with this app. The big green banner will say NO BAN, when there is indeed a Fire Danger Ban. The explication is: there is no Air Quality Ban. After reading the response to my review : The app and the reasoning is FLAWED. When there IS a ban, the app should NOT say No Ban. I had to scroll thru and hunt down any info on my county, when using the yellow banner. Not easy. I've deleted this app.
Burn Ban 411 has been updated for 2015. Important features have been added to cover burn bans in three additional areas: South Pierce, Peninsula, and Darrington. Called “sub-county burn ban areas” these locations may have different burn bans than the county they are in, so it’s important to get the update right away; especially if you live in one of these areas. There are new links on the Info Page in the app where you can check your address.
