Issued total fire ban today for WA. No fire ban exists on checking DFES website. How embarrassing. I shared this ban on Facebook. Edit : I can live with that. Pitty you can't send a notice about the erroneous alert. Thanks for the response.

Great app but..... This app is great but it's lacking in one vital area so I've only given it 4 stars instead of 5. It's allows you to set up your individual, specific watch/alert areas which is awesome if your a property owner or farmer etc. It's one failing is that the information is not shareable on social media or even by email, so I use this in conjunction with other emergency apps which are. This is the only app that allows you to pinpoint areas for continual monitoring.
