Editors' Review

by   / May 24, 2014

Wildfires by American Red Cross is a full-featured app that you can refer to for all kinds of information about wildfires in your area. You can check for new fires developing, and you can stay up to date with the latest news on fires in various locations, all from the same intuitive interface.


State-specific news: The news section of this app features sections for all fire-susceptible states. Once you've chosen your state, you can view the list of resources that state offers and follow links to their wildfire Twitter feed, InciWeb page, and other state-specific resources. There are also links on each state page with information about what to do if you're ordered to evacuate and how to prepare for evacuation.

What to do: This app is full of information about what you should do in various situations involving wildfires. You can read about what steps to take when you learn about a wildfire in your area as well as when you return to your home after a fire has been contained. You can also use the guide in this app to create a plan for your family, so everyone knows what to do and where to meet if you're not together when a fire arrives.


News loading issues: Some of the links on the state news pages didn't load at all or loaded quite slowly. However, all of the Twitter feeds tested worked well, though, and contained plenty of updates to keep you well informed on the status of fires in your area.

Bottom Line

Wildfires by American Red Cross is an invaluable resource if you live in a wildfire-prone area or if you have friends and family who do. You can study the tips contained in this free app, so you know what to do under a variety of circumstances. You can test your knowledge through the built-in quizzes the app offers, as well.
