Nowhere to go to get the very latest local bush fire information.
I wish Council would have a site that gives detailed up-to-date information on where the fires are spreading and if any evacuations or property damage is occurring.
Detailed localised information is not available on any of the sites, including the RFS web site. These sites only give a very general overall picture and it is not possible to know what is currently happening on the ground. At present the latest information is on social media, which is not always accurate.
Council needs to become involved, as they would have access to the very latest local information from the authorities that is not available to the general public. This should be an important role for Council in emergencies for both fire and flood.
