Current Wildfire Info - There's an App For That

Want the most up-to-date info about a current wildfire?  There's an iPhone/iPad app for that, called Wildfire Pro.

It provides detailed information about a wildfire, including:

  • Incident data from
  • Active fire perimeter mapping
  • Fire calculators with Weather and FDFM/PIG
  • Quick reference guides for Safety, Weather, Operations and Size Up reports
  • Fire maps with Custom overlays, Severe weather warnings and NEXRAD radar
Until now most of this data was not available until you arrived on scene.  But this app gives you vital information prior to arriving on scene.  That way you have more time to think through firefighting strategies and consider what wildland fire gear you'll need.

It has been (and is likely be) an active wildfire season.  Prepare now!

This app costs $4.99.

For Free, you can check out Wildfire Info

For $1.99, you can check out Wildfire Home.

All three pull data from
