Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here .
Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.
Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Fires Near Me NSW in the search bar and press Search. Click on Fires Near Me NSWapplication icon. A window of Fires Near Me NSW on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application.

Fires Near Me NSW is the official application of the NSW Rural Fire Service, providing information about bush and grass fires across NSW. The app shows incidents from all agencies including the NSW Rural Fire Service, Fire & Rescue NSW, National Parks & Wildlife Service, and Forestry Corporation. Stay up to date on bush fires in NSW with the official NSW Rural Fire Service Fires Near Me application, providing warnings and incident information. This app provides information on incidents across NSW attended by the NSW RFS and other agencies. Staying up to date is a key step in your bush fire survival plan – so ask yourself. How fireproof is your plan? Find out at www.myfireplan.com.au The NSW RFS recommends users of the app do not rely solely on the information provided in the app, and utilise other communications channels such as the public website (www.rfs.nsw.gov.au), the Bush Fire Information Line (1800 679 737) and local radio. We are constantly working on improvements to the Fires Near Me NSW app. We’ll be adding more functionality on push notifications soon.
