Push notifications maintenance

Hi all,

I am potentially building an app for a group of people who do some great volunteer work, and one of the big things they want in the app is push notifications so they can let people know when they're available/where they are.

The two big questions I have here are:
1: Regarding geolocations, is it possible to be far more specific, i.e. at an event/county (in the UK) or will I have to use topics?
2: What is the best way for a fairly technophobic group to utilise push notifications? I am worried that going through the FCM console on Firebase may be too technical for them.

Additional info:

I will be building this app in Flutter. I also don't actually know how to do push notifications correctly yet, I am currently learning that.

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Loop

Node.js doesn’t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
