Was good last year Every update seems to remove more information that made this app great, was a life saver on black Saturday as the fire ready app was uselessI got away earlier thanks to this app, more information helps public stay out of the way, and less likely to 'sight see'. I have wound the version back to 5 as it was far better, blocked further updates till it returns to a functional informative app again. Case of if it wasn't broke don't fix it.

Best app out Best app of its type, however I think that the app should not allow names of incident controllers etc to be added for privacy reasons

Worse App Ever I Think MFB Should Look into this app as the mods are broadcasting word for word & names of officers in there comment section thats said over mfb radio Network Which I'm Sure They Dont Have Permission To & Is Illegal I Don't See How It Benifits The Public On What House Is On Fire Or Who Is Cmdr At Scene Of Job Etc Its An App For Cranks To Goto Big Jobs To Get Pics Is What This App Is For Really. Lol Get A Life Mods Dann,Michael,AC,Thats From Real Firefighters & Not Scanner Firefighters. Watch 2nd Alarm Jobs

Great little app When the CFA app gives me an alert I go straight to this to see what's going on. The one thing that has gone missing recently is the CFA area for the call, though I might be missing something obvious.
