The Ready Virginia App for Smart Phones

I wanted to share some information about the “Ready Virginia” app for smart phones that was developed by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) as an interactive tool that makes it easier to be prepared for emergencies.

This free app can help users make emergency plans, collect emergency supplies and get the latest disaster news in preparation for hurricane season which lasts until November 30th.

Among the app’s features are:

  • Alerts: real-time weather and hazard alerts for your location
  • Plan: make your emergency plan and share it with family and friends
  • Local: GPS-enabled evacuation routes, flood risk updates, emergency manager contacts
  • Checklist: essential emergency supplies to have in your kit
  • Threats: learn what to do to prepare for the most likely disaster events in Virginia
  • Disaster news: stay informed on current emergency events or browse through previous disaster blogs
