Google alerts public to the danger of fires

100% human

The weather is not being kind to NSW residents right now, and if you’re having trouble getting through to the fire service, Google has the answer.

It’s not an issue everyone will need to take heed of, but if you’re having problems connecting to NSW Rural Fire Service – and we hear the servers at the fire service are struggling at the moment – Google has built a mirror detailing where fires are.

Below is a smaller map direct from the Google Crisis Map, but you can always see the full map in your browser at the site by clicking this link.

If you’re in any of the affected areas, stay safe, and make sure to keep an eye on the Crisis Map if you’re at all concerned.
