Ratings and Reviews
This is what professionals in California have nearby
First, to all the reviewers who don’t know, the ‘Cal’ in Cal Fire stands for California (formerly CDF or California Department of Forestry).
This is your first stop for information on wildfires in California so that is where the priority information emphasis is
The Cal Fire active fire map is your number one first stop to see the morning and evening report stats and assess each fire in the state. Having the Twitter feed included is golden. Those two features alone are worth having this in you pocket if you use them for work (as I do) could be threatened by an active fire or just want to know what’s going on.
(Note - I write very few reviews and am not a Cal Fire employee, but my work puts me at many of the state's biggest wildfires)
Great app!! A must have!!
This is an awesome app for quick access to California Fire status. It streamlines access to fire maps and twitter feeds. Thank you!!
