There's an App for that...from FEMA!

Wednesday, November 9, 2011
FEMA has now introduced a mobile app designed to give you information on how to prepare, how to register for assistance after a disaster, and how to find disaster recovery centers, along with other useful information.

The app is available for Android devices, as well as for iOS 5 devices (iPad, iPhone & iPod). Look for the app in the appropriate app store for your particular platform.

They have also announced that the app will be available for Blackberry devices, although I cannot confirm if the app for Blackberry has been released yet or not.

The new FEMA app will allow you to:

- Check off items you have included in your family's emergency kit(s)
- Enter your family emergency meeting location information
- Review safety tips on what to do before, during and after a disaster
- View a map of shelters and disaster recovery centers across the US
- Read FEMA blog posts
