My husband and I were discussing the importance of communication and how valuable cell phones are in day-to-day operations and the added value they bring to crisis communication after an event. He suggested that I challenge folks to put their cell phones down for a day. I decided instead to challenge you to look at your smart phone as a valuable life saving tool.
Have you downloaded any preparedness apps to your smart phone? If not, I would encourage you to take a look at this link. I found several sites that outlined some very impressive apps that would may be helpful to you while you are at home, work or traveling. Here is a site that listed 50 different apps that could prove valuable to you and your loved ones.
Would love to hear back from folks if you use any other apps that aren't included in this comprehensive list. Also, curious if you decided to add any apps as a result of looking at the site. Please, let me know, if you do.
Heading out for Partners today and I hope to see you at the Tacoma Convention Center this week too! Put the finishing touches on my welcome slideshow yesterday and am eager for another great Conference.
