Use Disaster-Related Apps
Knowledge is power, or so the old saying goes. That may be especially true in trying times and emergency scenarios. And while your iPhone is a link to the world’s knowledge as it is, it can be helpful to download apps with easily accessible and critical information before disaster strikes.
The Center for Disease Control and the American Red Cross both have excellent resource apps for emergencies. The latter organization also has a first aid app, which is also an excellent idea (don’t forget first aid for your pet, either). You may even want to download apps aimed at survival skills, like the SAS Survival Guide and Knots Guide.
