Citizens to the Rescue a Disaster Response Mobile App by Larissa Paschyn(May 23, 2018)
Available for free today, Citizens to the Rescue is an all-hazard disaster alerting network app for iPhone and Android for ordinary citizens to be able to mobilize and assemble voluntary emergency response teams in the event of a disaster.
Citizens to the Rescue allows ordinary citizens, government agencies and NGOs to streamline and field rescue requests. Before or after a disaster, a person signs in and identifies their location and emergency. It pins their location and sends out an alert to people within a 100-mile radius, who can create emergency rescue parties. Citizens to the Rescue let's responders and public alike communicate when 911 is down and tracks victim locations better than social media. It can be used for every type of disaster: active shootings, earthquakes, landslides, floods, assaults and more.
It is the only app on the market that presents to the public an alternative solution when 911 fails and allows regular people to save lives. It also circumnavigates the need for social media posts. A study by the University of Buffalo found that tweets during the Boston Marathon Bombings, Louisiana Floods, and Hurricane Harvey spread misinformation and caused delays and false reports for emergency rescues.
Citizens to the Rescue can let everyone person be a hero and save lives when a disaster strikes.
