Fires Near Me NSW
By NSW Rural Fire Service
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The official New South Wales Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) app for emergency warnings and incident information. This app provides information on incidents across NSW attended by the NSW RFS and other agencies.
Do you have a bush fire survival plan? Getting ready for a bush fire is easier than you think. By taking 20 minutes with your family to discuss what you’ll do during a fire, you could save their lives, as well as your home (www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/bfsp)
The NSW RFS recommends users of the app do not rely solely on the information provided in the app, and utilise other communications channels such as the public website (www.rfs.nsw.gov.au), the information line (1800 679 737) and the media.
What's New in Version 3.0.0
Bug fixes and a new, clear design for a better user experience.
Would love to give 5 stars but since the update and new facelift the app has a few flaws.
Fires are no longer listed in correct places on map. Example the Heatons (freemans waterhole ) fire is listed up near Clarence town.
The other day the killingworth/m1 fire was listed over in warners bay.
I find the fires that when they are eventually listed take quite while in that there are delays in them getting loaded on to the map. Which makes it hard to keep up to date.
This app needs the bugs sorted or it needs to be improved before the official fire season kicks off as this is the go to to keep up to date and unfortunately right now it isn't doing what it should do.!
Useless app!! It's never updated
We had a massive fire in Coalcliff with 4 houses alight and it's been well over 2 hours and there's nothing warning us of any fire.. it's in the News.. pfft give this app a miss and use Twitter. Disappointed I went to this app first.
This may be acceptable if the person who updates the info on this map is part of the 20 fire trucks that are there.
Very user friendly!
It's easy to see where all the fires are and the status! There are so many right now too!
