OpenSource EV Charging Station Project
During a disaster EV owners have to plan ahead due to limited charging station opportunities and the time it takes to recharge an electric vehicle. Rapid rechargers take 30 minutes and there may only be 1-2 charging stations at an already very busy gas station during an evacuation.
There is an opensource project (everyday people add information to the project) to maintain a current map of EV charging stations across the country. This repository relies on individual citizens to input data and share data much like the PubSafe public safety mobile app. With thousands or millions of EV users constantly updating the data, an accurate global listing of charging stations can be maintained. Check out the map to see charging stations in your area.
We are working on the next update to the content available to be collected. One area we want to improve significantly is the SAR & NGO content under the SitRep menu. Once finalize the information to be collected the next step is to move it to the map...
Animal rescue is a key component to caring our the pets that are so dear to our families. Pet rescue after a disaster requires unique resources and coordination. The Aftermath Data mobile app enables people to mark the location of their pets, condition and type of pet for future rescue on a map shared by all.
