Hazards Near Me – A new App

Hazards Near Me may have magically appeared on your phone as an upgrade to the original Fires Near Me. It incorporates emergency warnings and other information from both the RFS and the SES.

Shown below is the Map page with Alerts in Yellow and Incidents in White. 

The blue icon is a Watchzone set up for 10km around the Fire Shed.  You can set up Watchzones for around your home and also around the homes of other people close to you like your family.

 You can click on any of the triangle icons and it will bring up further information:

Click it again and you will get this screen:

This is the Watchzones screen showing just one zone set up.

There’s lots more information on the App including recommendations on what to do before a fire, during a fire and after it passes.
