Red Cross App Tackles Safety During Severe Weather
As tropical storms, hurricanes and other severe weather systems are bearing down, emergency officials are gearing up, and they’ve got a new weapon in the bad weather tool box.
FOX News Radio’s Jill Nado reports:
You know that horrible feeling when a disaster hits, and you don’t know who’s where?
(McGuire) “What they can do is, first of all, make sure their loved ones are safe.”
Janet McGuire of the Red Cross.
(McGuire) “We have a new hurricane app that we just released that they can actually program to make sure that they report if they’re safe or not.”
The app supplies your smart phone with a one touch ‘I’m Safe’ button. You hit that button and word goes out on your social media outlets to tell your family and friends that you’re okay.
It comes with a flashlight or strobelight setting and an alarm. It also monitors storm conditions in your area. And, best of all, it’s free.
