App Reviews

  • Fire

    By Random_65143
    If this Emergency Alert app is supposed to be all-purpose, the Wildfire functionality needs to be beefed up. Unfortunately the Red Cross “Wildfire” app no longer works under the new IOS, and, this all-purpose Emergency app doesn’t handle fires adequately. Think about the Napa area fires this last October-what the functionality the app could have had that would have made things better for people who, it turned out, had little or no warning to evacuate from the fast-moving fires.
  • Good for various alerts but needs work

    By i8lutfisk
    Good for various alerts like fires, snow, rain, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc., but needs work. It prompts you for people you care about in a particular town that you specify. But if you exit the app then those contacts are lost. Same with the “I’m safe” feature - great idea but in an emergency I want the contacts loaded and ready so I can just send loved ones the message that I’m alright. Those contacts aren’t saved either. Otherwise good app.
  • To many alerts for same thing

    By jkv5
    Over all this works fine but I don’t need a alert to tell me the alert as expired or a alert that tells me the storm that caused the alert has moved on or a alert that tell me a severe rain storm is going to cause flash flood. Within 30 min I received 7 alerts about the status of the same storm cell. So frequent I disabled the alerts ....... so a program to alert that the alerts are disabled ...... see the problem?
  • Needs other than natural disasters

    By Ninobrown02
    Should include active shooter or terrorist type events. Was in Vegas this weekend when the mass shooting happened. So should be able to report information on events like that. Provide information such as collection points, relocation points, family check-in capability....
  • Incredibly helpful

    By Vv224
    This app has notified me of weather changes 6-10 hours before local news. Living in an area where hail, windstorms and flooding occur, this is incredibly helpful. It gives you an opportunity to do things ahead of time.
  • Emergency app

    By RustyLady
    I’ve had this app for at least a year and I’m highly satisfied with the alerts I get from each area of the USA. I have family in several states and I’m able to know what’s happening at each area.
  • Great Application

    By RsTile
    This is a great app. It keeps me informed abt oncoming and current severe weather situations, and allows me to keep in touch with my family and friends. I love that it shows a weather radar and also if needed lists shelters I can go to in an emergency.
  • So-So, cannot accurately set alerts

    By Dreadpirate Patty
    I have set a radius of FOUR miles from my home and still get alerts for flash floods over 100 miles from my home. All other alerts seem appropriate. Handy to have but annoying to be alerted multiple times within an hour with irrelevant alerts.
  • Does not work

    By Eyeisasmart1
    I have a huge wildfire close enough that I have been notified of possible evacuation and this app only says "all is well." I have notifications on and all the wildfire options selected. I have my notification radius well within the limits of the fire and there is still nothing. No notifications of any kind or hint that anything is amiss. If this app worked it would be great!
  • Amazing app!

    By Addibiz22
    This app is really cool! It helps me track weather, know where storms and tornadoes are, know where my friends and family are during storms, etc.! Thank you for this app, keep up the good work!
