Fire ready......

Is it hot where you are? Do you have a "fire plan"?
We are about to have our 3rd day in a row over 42C, and the Victorian  CFA warnings page is constantly open on the computer. We've also down loaded this fantastic app to our phones, called "CFA Fire Ready". Very impressed. It uses GPS to locate you, and links back to the CFA warnings to show any fires in your area. It gives you the distance the fire is from you, so when I read that 22 CFA trucks attending an out of control grass fire 12km away, I couldn't help but feel a bit anxious. Thankfully the CFA had it under control very quickly. Those caught up Tasmania fires haven't been so lucky.
