Community Guidelines

Wildfire aims to create a community where individuals can help keep each other informed and safer. You can post on Wildfire when something happens that is important or notable in your community. The community grows stronger when we work together to keep each other better informed. We want people to feel empowered when using Wildfire.

In order to accomplish this we’ve developed community guidelines, outlined below. Keeping in mind the diversity of our communities please be mindful when posting content. It is also important to remember that something that may be disturbing to you may not violate our community guidelines. Notifications are sent out based on their relevance and pertinence to the immediate, surrounding community.

Please keep in mind that Wildfire is not a replacement for calling 9–1–1. If you are in or witness an emergency situation, we ask you to call 9–1–1 first before posting to Wildfire.

Content Boundaries:

In order for Wildfire to provide relevant and real time safety information to our users, there are some limitations on the type of content that can be published on the app.

Abusive Behavior:

Wildfire believes in freedom of speech and expression, but in order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice. Any accounts engaging in the activities highlighted below may be temporarily blocked and/or subject to permanent suspension.


You may not use Wildfire with the intention of spamming or providing false information to users. We reserve the right to add to this list as we respond to new tricks and tactics by spammers. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming are:

Wildfire reserves the right to immediately terminate your account without further notice in the event that, in its judgment, you violate these Rules or the Terms of Service.

Wildfire in it’s entirety is not responsible for the content posted by users our app, nor are we liable for the validity of the content posted on the app. We make no warranties, assurances or representations with regards to the media’s content, timeliness, accuracy or reliability.

Reporting something doesn’t guarantee that it will be removed because it may not violate our policies.

Our content reviewers will look to you for information about why a post may violate our policies. If you report content, please tell us why the content should be removed.

The consequences for violating our Community Guidelines vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person’s history on Wildfire. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation, but if we continue to see further violations we may restrict a person’s ability to post on Wildfire or ban the person from Wildfire.
