Preparing for an emergency or a natural disaster may be just one click away on your smartphone, thanks to innovative technology.
As of today, Tennesseans can download Ready TN, the state emergency management agency’s popular smartphone application for iPhones and iPad devices.
Once the app is downloaded, residents will be able to receive information and resources on hazards and how to prepare for emergencies.
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam was quoted as saying citizens are relying increasingly on their mobile devices for relevant and timely information, and the Ready TN app delivers critical tips and resources so residents can be prepared the next time disaster strikes.
iPhone and iPad users simply need to search for Ready TN in the app store or in iTunes store and then download it to their mobile devices.
TEMA is the first state agency to develop and launch a consumer application that is compatible on multiple smartphone devices.
In February, the organization launched the same app to smartphone users running the Android operating system and state officials say over 15,000 Android users have downloaded the application.
