This application is designed to provide up to date information about bush fire data in Victoria, Australia for users of Android devices.
It utilises data from the Victorian Country Fire Authority/Victorian Department of Sustainability data feeds on fires with your current location provided by the phone GPS.
Using this information the application is able to provide a list of fires showing the nearest ones first, helping you to understand your current situation.
The information is reliant on both the accuracy of the phone's GPS and the data recorded on the CFA's website.
This application does not cache any data, so Internet access (either Wireless. or 3G) is required to access the data.
Be aware that while P4G has utilised "best efforts" to provide this information to you, it is not intended to replace other sources of information on the fire situation near you. Also remember that fire and weather can change quickly.
All data is provided Copyright from the Victorian Country Fire Authority and the Victorian Department of Sustainability.

Version 1.3.1 makes a change in the direction of the wind arrows. The arrows now point to where the wind is going to.
Version 1.3 makes some changes to the warning icons to make them similar to the emergency vic web site. Also includes the ability to sort by District and fixes some stability issues.
Version 1.2 cleans up how the alerts are being displayed on the map, to make it easier to see which towns are affected by the alert.
Hoping for a safe summer....
