San Diego County launches smart phone app (SD Emergency App) on Thursday (Sept. 27, 2012) dedicated to tracking disasters and major emergencies in San Diego County in an effort to get San Diego residents public safety information.  The app works both on the iPhone and Android powered phones.

San Diego County Supervisor Ron Roberts said, “[The app will] help you plan, to prepare and to respond for any one of a whole plethora of emergencies.  And if San Diego County residents know one thing, they know that we need to be prepared for disasters” (KPBS article, http://bit.ly/QAyfdD).  Roberts highlighted the App is up-t0-date and is even tracking the new Shockey Fire in southern San Diego County.

The San Diego Emergency App contains disaster preparedness information, interactive checklists to help you to create your emergency plan, build an emergency supplies kit, and when disaster strikes, the SD Emergency App will keep you and your family informed with emergency updates, interactive emergency maps, and shelter locations.

If the cell phone network goes down during an emergency, information can be found online at the county’s web site (http://www.sdcountyemergency.com).   County officials said the apps just make it easier and faster to get information out.

Links and more information to the Apple App Store and the Android App Google play can be found on readysandiego.org website – http://www.readysandiego.org/SDEmergencyApp
