    App was brilliant. But in the past few months the data is extremely poor. Fires in my area regularly not showing on map.

    There aren't any settings for incident notifications. Keep getting notifications for traffic accidents and alarms all the time. There is no way to choose which incident notifications to receive so I had to make the notifications silent.
