Confused - exactly how accurate are the updates??

I really am not sure what happened to reliability of this app ☹️. Initially when first told about it I was there and downloaded the app which was like having an extra arm, something that gave me accurate 100% info that left me feeling relatively well informed, BUT HOWEVER I no longer get notifications or important info - for eg: at around near 10pm my mother received on her phone a notification from the app “fires near me” which I also have but failed me about a bush fire only 5km away 😡

These mathematical equations aren’t too settling !!!!!!!

What has happened to this app “Fires Near Me” which not so long ago and may have been in “L” plate status or even “P” plate level was something I had no hesitation in looking at and deciding for myself to being a truly unreliable app????

So what is the most accurate and reliable information regarding the bush fire in the Sherwood area ?????? Thanks


Pretty Good! 🔥🔥🦄🍗

This app is extremely helpful and very useful. But sometimes the app is a bit slow and it needs an update soon, even though this is a problem, I would totally recommend this app to everyone!

Needs attending too

I thought this app was great, until a short time ago watching the news and said there’s a life threatening fire bout 45mins away from us... nothing on the app and hasn’t been at all. I’ve been checking regularly to check fire status near family in NSW. I understand firefighters are very busy but surely someone sitting in admin could do regular updates. A bit disappointed in this app now.
