CFU Admin and Activity Apps

Download the new CFU Admin & Activity App!

The CFU Admin and CFU Activity mobile apps will support you in your role as CFU volunteers. Both apps, used together, will improve communication, safety and situational awareness and provide more simple and streamlined activation.

CFU Admin App and Portal

  • Both have the same content, look and feel
  • Makes it easier for you to view and update your contact and unit details, view your training records and access maps and CFU documents.

CFU Activity App

  • Receive Push Notifications alerting of Total Fire Bans (TOBAN’s) and FDR’s in your area (we will no longer be sending SMS notifications for TOBANS but emails will continue)
  • Notifies you of bushfires within a 5km radius of your CFU location and displays it on an interactive map.
  • CFU Members can activate for bushfires, hazard reductions, training and community events and allows communication between members.
  • Allows the CFU Management Team access to see and manage unit activations on behalf of a unit and provides them with the ability to send messages to members

Both CFU Admin and Activity were tested by the CFU management team and CFU members to ensure they are easy to use and fit for purpose.

This number will still be available for all members to use.
