Quick Safe

Project Info

Project Description


Quick Safe is an app for local communities to assit them with dealing with bushfires by allowing them to see the fire risk for their area. They will also be able to see where the last resort building's are and have the option of a head count with the people in their area to see if everyone has made it. The app will also alert them if there is an update near them and provide information on what to do. The CFS will be able to see where people are in at risk areas when they are not in a safe location (have downloaded the app).


Data Story


In the data we are using the fire danger ratings on the homescreen of our app which will give the user the fire risk of their location. Bushfire last resorts we have used on the maps which shows the user the closest last resort buildings for them. Using the "Number of Properties by Street and Suburb" data it gives the users a list of the people in their area so when they go to the last resort which they have found on the map they can have a head count to see who still has to come. "Precis forecast" – each State in Australia has the weather data for the day the user is on the app and the future weather which tells them the risk on a fire in the coming days.
