(KFVS) - The American Red Cross has launched their official Earthquake App, putting lifesaving information right in the hands of people who live in or who visit earthquake prone areas.
The free app, available in English or Spanish, is the third in a series created by the American Red Cross. They say it is available for both iPhone and Android platforms. The app comes on the heels of the highly successful First Aid and Hurricane apps, which have been downloaded more than 1 million times.
“This newest app gives instant access to local and real time information on what to do before, during and after earthquakes.” said Jamie Koehler, Red Cross Emergency Service Director for the Southeast Missouri Chapter “Residents will receive earthquake notifications and can monitor activity where other family and friends reside. People who do not live in earthquake-prone areas can have peace of mind knowing you’ll have instant information about loved ones.”
