It replaces the FireReady app. In addition to fire warnings, the new app provides warnings and incident notifications for emergencies including storms, shark sightings and beach closures. It features improved watch zones, allowing users to target the locations and incidents that are relevant to them.

A new VicEmergency hotline also gives the community timely access to all warnings, preparedness and recovery information before, during and after emergencies. The hotline replaces the existing Victorian Bushfire Information Line and Victorian Emergency Recovery Line. Existing phone lines will redirect to the VicEmergency Hotline – 1800 226 226
