What is it?
Wildfires Near Me is a beta web application that focuses on keeping you informed about wildfires in your area. You tell the app all the places you care about and you will receive an email or text message when a fire is possibly threatening that location. It's fast, simple, and easy to use.
Wildfires Near Me is a prototype, a test to determine if there is a need for an application like this. We will be testing the app throughout the 2016 fire season and then hopefully moving it to a production environment with full support.
For now, enjoy the app and please let us know what you think!
We bring information to you so you don't have to go find it yourself! Within a few short minutes you can monitor the places you care about and get an email or text when a fire is threatening that location.
Join the social media conversation surrounding a fire. Connect your Facebook and Twitter account to post directly from our app. The best part - your tweets will show up on the map!
Wildfires Near Me notifies you about new wildfire starts based on the locations you choose. To continue receiving updates on a specific fire you can follow that fire and we'll keep sending you updates.
