  • No issues at all

    Most reviewers I notice are probably having an issue with the settings related to their specific watch zone areas. By default not all specific incidents will prompt the app user with a notification. This system is based on 000 calls, so of course not every issue will be known until it’s first registered. To expect the App to know about a fire before even 000 knows is just ridiculous. In the event of an emergency always make sure you have a backup radio powered by batteries as cellular service can crash. Don’t blame the app for your ignorance.
  • Hopelessly complicated app.

    This app is far to complicated and difficult to use. Information is hard to find. The State government has wasted lots of taxpayer money combining all services into one app, making it difficult to navigate and causing frustration. The original DSE and CFA FireReady apps were easy to use and shouldn’t have been scrapped. The Vic Emergency app is useless when trying to get information. I’m sure most people give up trying to use it. Bring back the original separate apps for each service before people are injured or have their homes destroyed. This app is complicated “overkill”. The person or panel who dreamt up this mess should be moved to less important roles. Typical politicians and public servants squandering money and creating more work for their mates. GET RID OF IT!
  • The app the cry’s wolf...

    My biggest bugbear with this app is the amount of none relevant notifications is pings out. I ended up reducing my watch zone down to 1km of my home to try and fix this, yet I will still get irrelevant notifications that are for things miles away. When it’s pinging every half an hour, people are going to start ignoring it, so it’s going to become pretty self-defeating if this isn’t improved. I really don’t need to know about every car crash and fallen tree on the other side of the city. I would however like to know when one falls outside my house and the SES have close the road, that it didn’t tell me.
