Getting Twitter notifications on your phone from fire/emergency agencies

Using this method, you don’t have to be on Twitter to see a breaking news tweet.

  1. Download the Twitter app on your phone. This has to be the Twitter app, not Hootsuite or Tweetdeck.
  2. Open app, sign in and search for the Twitter accounts listed below.
  3. If you are not already following them, click ‘follow’ and then click the person icon to the left of the ‘follow’ button
  4. Click ‘Turn on notifications’ (You may have to go into your phone settings and allow Twitter to send you notifications before it will let you do this.)

@inciweb – this one is hit or miss because it posts fires from across the country
