I am finding that there is virtually an app for everything, from gaming apps, to shopping, banking, maps...the list is endless! I know I rely heavily on my smart phone and my apps to help me keep track of my daily activities, appointments, emails, social media and so on and am always on the lookout for new apps.
Well I just found a new app for Disaster Planning. The new Know Your Plan app – listed as “Your Plan” in iTunes – gives you the mobile power and organization to help keep your family and your home safer during a disaster. The app is available for free in the iTunes Store. The Know Your Plan, which can be used on iPhone, iPad and iTouch, was developed by the Insurance Information Institute, and features property protection guidance from the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).
Some helpful tools this app contains is the IBHS disaster preparedness checklists for hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes, severe winter weather and evacuations and even gives local emergency information. Click here to read the full article from IBHS on how this new app can help you and your family prepare for a disaster.
Know Your Plan is one more tool to help you organize, stay safe, and reduce the risk of your home being damaged during a disaster.
