Unveiled September 22, 2016 – The new “ReadyErie” app is available for free and is designed for the iPhone, iPad, android and iOS systems.

Among other uses, the multi-purpose app will allow users to receive critical information and emergency alerts through push notifications, locate Erie County’s emergency shelters, view up-to-date evacuation route maps, and create a personalized Emergency Preparedness Plan by answering five basic questions. The ReadyErie app takes emergency planning and preparedness to the next level and will give users the information they need at the time they need it, helping them and their loved ones to respond to emergencies in a safe and organized manner.

With this app Erie County can communicate directly with its citizens and individuals can have access to critical alerts and updates to coordinate planning with family or co-workers, and stay on top of changing conditions. The app also has useful information on ways to prepare before disaster strikes, helping to mitigate damage and protect lives.

Planning and preparation can make all the difference when disaster strikes, and the ReadyErie app makes it easier than ever to develop a plan and be prepared for an emergency. As we’ve seen, disasters can happen at any time.

Get the app. Make a plan. Be prepared.
