The Fires Near Me NSW mobile application has been upgraded, with users now able to receive notifications about #fires and other important safety information. This is a significant step forward in communicating important bush and grass fire information to the community. Fires Near Me NSW gives users the ability to identify the location and size of bush fire activity in areas of concern for them.
The new update now allows residents to receive push notifications for areas of interest, whether it be their home location, family properties or relatives far away. In a few short steps, users can set up Watch Zones for more specific information on areas they’d like to keep an eye on. Fires near Me compliments the suite of information tools already available to the public, including the a#NSW RFS website and 1800 Bush Fire Information Line. Users can search for the Fires Near Me NSW app in the AppStore or Google Play.There is also a national version, Fires Near Me Australia, which provides basic information from participating fire agencies interstate.
