No maps This app Just links to external sites. Would like to see a map within the app to view current wildfire activity near me, or in my state, or within x miles. And would also see within the app any active warnings, watches, or evacuated areas.

Just links I only give 2 points because it only links you to other websites. It does have information (again websites)linked for "what to do" during and after an wild fire, I did not see an option to get notifications or warnings for my area when fires flare up so, it doesn't do any good not knowing ahead of time where the fires are...and you have to deal with the aftermath... Disappointed
