Red Cross Emergency App

Red Cross' new Apple App, Emergency, can help you prepare for and respond to various emergencies, tailored to your location, including wildfires.

From the Source:

"The first app, called Emergency, is available for free at the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. It’s like a virtual Swiss Army knife, combining emergency alerts, useful information and communications capabilities all in one handy tool.

You can customize the app for the types of incidents common to your location. You don’t need volcano alerts in Pennsylvania any more than you need blizzard warnings in Hawaii.

If you have loved ones in Hawaii, or anywhere else, however, you can set up alerts to notify you about emergencies in their locations. You also can customize the app so your loved ones can message you about how they’re faring, or you can send them a warning of impending doom — or advice on what to do and where to go for safety." - Kevin O'Neill, The Times-Tribune
