Challenge

Connects Survivors with Agency Responders

For the first time in history, the US experienced three major hurricanes in the span of five weeks – requiring the deployment of 90,000 federal responders to support over 2,000,000 survivors. FEMA DM required a responsive mobile technology solution to connect displaced disaster survivors with agency responders and drive the recovery process.

Solution

Lifesaving Connections with Direct Responders

Ambit’s Disaster Management team developed the award-winning FEMA mobile app for iOS, Android, and Blackberry devices, offering survivors a direct link to FEMA’s disaster response teams.

The app provides survivors with reporting and photo sharing technology, integrated with National Weather Service alerts, to ensure citizens have access to critical weather and location information.

Results

The FEMA mobile app has proven to be mission critical for the agency – gaining industry recognition as the subject of numerous publications and awards.

The app has over 500,000 users and delivers weather alerts to more than 190,000 mobile devices across 294,000 locations.
