Safety Maps -- Design a Meeting Place After a Weather Disaster
With the start of the 2011 hurricane season we got to thinking how hard it had been to find and stay in touch with relatives and friends during the last few we endured in 2004 and 2005. First comes that depressing moment when the power dies and electrical activity grinds to a halt. Then cell towers are overloaded or even go down and landlines are flooded out. Where is everyone and are they okay?
Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes. Have you ever thought about how you'd stay in touch with your loved ones if you experienced a natural disaster or other emergency? Safety Maps is a free online tool that helps you plan for this situation. You can use it to choose a safe meeting place, print a customized map that specifies where it is, and share this map with your loved ones.
