Our Impact






Notifications Sent

Our Mission

Nearly every wildfire fatality occurs within the first hour yet official notifications are often delayed, sparse, or non-existent.  Watch Duty, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, alerts you of nearby wildfires and firefighting efforts in real-time, when every second counts.

Our service is powered by real people – active and retired firefighters, dispatchers, and first responders – who monitor radio scanners and collaborate around the clock to bring you up-to-the-minute information.  

Your donations are 100% tax deductible and ensure that our service is here to stay, grow, and expand to help more people in more disaster-affected areas.

Interested in Volunteering?

We are always looking for skilled volunteers to help us build our platform and cover more territory to keep our community safe.

Join a team of some of the best and brightest engineers, reporters, scanners, first responders, retired firefighters, and dispatchers.
