FireWhat is a company made by firefighters, for firefighters. They maintain a website, firewhat.com, that monitors and tracks wildfires across the country. The information is pulled from several federally-verified sources, ensuring accuracy. Critical information such as the size of the fire, a satellite image of the terrain involved, and local weather are all brought onto a single window, giving the viewer a complete overview of what is actually happening on the ground.
That information is now available to anyone with a smartphone. The app was released on the iOS platform last October, and has been expanded to three different versions, one for firefighters, one for homeowners, and a free, ‘lite’ version. These three are known as Wildfire Pro, Wildfire Home, and Wildfire Info, respectively. The Pro version, targeted towards firefighters, is the one now available for all Android-compatible phones. In addition to the mapping and weather information, handy features such as weather calculators and several operations guides.
The app is available for $6.99. For more information, check out firewhat.com.
