In today’s environment communication has built in inefficiencies resulting in information silos. Each agency or organization has their own communication channels which creates digital noise for citizens. Does a citizen monitor Twitter, Facebook, County, NOAA, FEMA or some other channel to get information? In the process 99% of users likely pick one and stick with it. PubSafe provides a platform to bridge the gaps between agencies both nationally and internationally. Government users have the option of sending messages to people based on their location.

Emergency Management Continuum
Excellent data can:
Improve resource purchasing and staging
More accurate quantities of key resources such as generators
Assignment of areas of operation based on historical data and types of issues
Realistic training scenarios based on historical events
This should never happen.
Shelter & Aid Station Status
Reporting the status of shelters, hospitals or aid stations prevents people from going places that have no resources before, during or after an event. Live updates enable people to determine which alternate resource should be utilized, which is closest and if the right resources as available such as first aid or pet facilities.
During massive events, resources are lost, stolen or just abandoned due to inefficiency. There are millions of dollars in equipment and supplies that simply disappear. It is not realistics to have zero loss but improving 10-30% means tens of millions of dollars delivered to those that need it.
Recovery - Aftermath
Aftermath is not intended to be a replacement for the current system of data collection but to augment current processes. Since EOC technology and processes have been developed for many decades, organizations may want to export the data for utilization with existing maps or data sets. To facilitate enhanced data integration, APIs are available to provide anonymized data using industry standard data transfer protocols.
