When the bad storms hit, you'll want the FEMA app on your smartphone or tablet.
With the FEMA app, you can track up to five locations anywhere in the U.S., get weather alerts and notifications for those locations, as well as get tips and instructions from FEMA on what to do during a storm or other emergency situation.
You can also get your family prepared for the worst by setting up your family's emergency plan, complete with an escape route and a list of items you'll want to have ready to go. For example, you'll want one gallon of water for each person for each day you're anticipating to be without power, usage of roads, or other resources.
Worst-case scenario, if a storm wipes out your area, you can use the app to locate the nearest FEMA shelter or disaster recovery center, too.
Download the FEMA app now and take all the precautions you can before disaster strikes. You and your family are worth it. It's a free app and it couldn't hurt.
