Apps

As we all know there is an incredible amount of information online covering what to do in a disaster, but victims of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane or earthquake, seldom have access to the Internet when everything 'hits the fan'. What we often have, on the other hand, is a smartphone, which is why a disaster preparedness app is a good thing for anyone to download. The list below provides a good set to start with beginning with ours of course!
