Okay quick quiz:
- Do you know the difference between a storm warning and a storm watch?
- What should you do if there is a fire in my house?
- What are some key items you should have in a preparedness kit?
Don’t worry if you don’t know the answers to any of those right now, a lot of people don’t. That is why we created and delivered the Arlington Prepares Mobile App for iPhone and Android devices.
Often, people hear or read the warnings, but aren’t sure what to do. This app allows users to read the alert, and click on the menu labeled, What Do I Do? From here, you’re given a quick definition and best advice on what to do in an emergency.
When it comes to preparedness kits, how many of us run to the store at the last minute and try and buy everything? How does that usually work out? The Make a Plan section allows you to customize your own kit and keep track of what you have at all times, so maybe at the last minute you are just running out to see the crowds.
And the app is free. Download the app today and take it for a spin, and let us know what you think.
