FEMAC has been monitoring smartphone apps pertaining to emergencies since 2013.
Although FEMAC is developing a personal emergency app, it is recommended to always have alternate sources for communications.
Below is a list of mobile apps that have been developed for some sort of emergency purpose. If you would like to submit an app to post, please submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: FEMAC’s disclosure of the sites are not for endorsement or not.
Many apps only last a short time so we have moved them to the bottom of the list.
Some apps are free while others may require an individual or company one-time or annual fee.
