So, I went straight to the FireReady App on my iPhone to check what fires were in the region.
The FireReady App is a must-have app for everyone, regardless of where you live - especially on a day like today in Melbourne, where we have high winds and an expected top of 41°.
You can set up 'Watch Zones' for particular areas, and receive updates (via a notification on your mobile device) of any fire activity in the area, choosing which types of events you wish to be notified of (i.e. bushfires, house fires, hazardous materials, planned burns).
