Wildfire Alert is NOT an emergency notification system. The Wildfire Alert system only communicates fire location information provided by other sources, which do not identify all wildfires and the information provided can contain inaccuracies.
Please contact your local emergency response agencies or the American Red Cross for details on local fires and what steps you need to be taking if you believe a fire is endangering your property.
Wildfire Alert is a communication system, which provides a conduit by which fire location information can be reported to its members.
The Wildfire Alert website and mobile application provides a feature that allows fire departments and members to report fire locations.
Wildfire Alert also accesses other resources such as website reports and news media to determine additional fire locations.
Government agencies make available databases that contain information both historical and current with regard to wildfires. This information is often hard to access and comprehend. The Wildfire Alert system downloads information on fires from databases on a regular basis, and along with other sources of fire data including input from local fire departments and mobile application users, populates the Wildfire Alert databases. The Wildfire Alert system provides tables, and maps in an effort to present the information contained in these Wildfire Alert databases in a manner that is in a more understandable format for its members. Wildfire Alert LLC. (“Wildfire”), is not responsible for the accuracy of the information that is entered into the Wildfire Alert databases. Wildfire , attempts to communicate to its members any updates to the information provided in these databases, in close proximity to the time that the information becomes available.
However, Wildfire ., is not responsible for the inability of the internet, any phone system, PC, or mobile application based technology to communicate that information accurately or in a timely manner. Therefore, Wildfire Alert LLC., does not make any warranties of any kind, either express or implied, with regards to the Service, including without limitation, warranties about the accuracy, completeness, or delivery of any information transmitted through the Wildfire Alert System. There is no guarantee that a notification will reach any particular member upon activation. By providing the Service, Wildfire , does not assume a duty of care.
The Wildfire Alert System only provides information from the USGS data base on wildfires and wildfires reported by our members and member fire departments in the United States of America.

DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY
The Wildfire Alert database has been updated with location information on a new or existing fire, which is within the notification radius for the property location that you have entered into the Wildfire Alert system. The Wildfire Alert database receives location information from several sources: A national USGS database, which is queried every four hours by the Wildfire Alert system, other fire information sources that are queried from time to time, Input from local participating fire departments by way of the Wildfire Alert website or mobile apps, Input from members by way of the Wildfire Alert website or mobile apps.
Wildfire Alert is NOT an emergency notification system. The Wildfire Alert system only communicates fire location information provided by other sources, which do not identify all wildfires and the information provided can contain inaccuracies. Please contact your local emergency response agencies or the American Red Cross for details on local fires and what steps you need to be taking if you believe a fire is endangering your property.
The Wildfire Alert service measures the distance from the members identified property location to the latitude and longitude of the fire location as entered into the Wildfire Alert database. This information is used to identify fires within the property location notification radius that you have entered into the Wildfire Alert system. We are encouraging you to keep a close watch on the progress of these active fires as they can change direction and speed very quickly.
We are not responsible for damage or destruction to property, or injury or death to animals or people as the result of your actions or inaction in regard to the information that you may receive from the Wildfire Alert system regarding any fire in your area at any time.
We make no warranties or representations about the effectiveness of the data that we transmit, via our website or mobile apps. Please take all prudent and necessary measures to keep yourself fully informed and in communication with all emergency response agencies in your area in order to have as much advanced notice as possible in the event that you need to take any actions whatsoever.
DO NOT CALL WILDFIRE ALERT IN AN EMERGENCY.
