This concept is the essences of the Aftermath Data app. When it comes to disasters and emergencies we are all people, humans, and Americans. If there is a silver lining in a disaster it is the good that it brings out of people willing and wanting to help each other.

- If someone is home health care or a homebound patient, inquire to their evacuation plan
- Encourage vets and caregivers to post status info for family and friends in other areas
