With this app by the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention & Control, you can keep tabs on wildfires and relief efforts across the state of Colorado with Colorado Wildfire Watch.
Natural disasters can wreak havoc on communities and homes, not to mention wildlife. In the midst of a fire, there is often confusion and information tends to be lacking. Our hope is to provide a go-to resource that will allow you to stay up-to-date on what's happening across the state with regard to wildfires.
In this app, you'll find:
- A list of all active fires across Colorado, with details and contact information
- Map with active fires, shelters, and assistance centers
- Updates on all active fires
- Twitter feeds on all active fires
- Donation information
- Information on volunteering
- Photo gallery
- Image submission of fires from users around the state
- Reports on all fires
- Ability to receive push notes - direct messages - to your phone before, during and after a wildfire.
Ratings and Reviews
Quite good and very helpful
I’m finding the app to be very helpful in understanding what’s going on around me. Though not necessarily up to the minute, it provides much better info than I can get anywhere else. Before I had to search multiple sources, most would be out of date. I recommend that updating the info more quickly and often be a priority because of the vital service this app could provide to everyone living in the forests of Colorado.
App isn’t bad, it’s updated enough to know what’s going on. My only issue is the app stops my music from playing when you open the app.... why? This app has no sounds, so why shut off whatever music I have playing?
Could Be Better
Info isn’t updated enough but if the links are active, which they aren’t always, takes you to updated site easily.
