FEMA launches mobile Website for smart phones

FEMA this week launched a mobile Website to deliver information on emergency preparedness via smart phones.

The Website is laid out in a question-and-answer format, outlining what to do in a disaster, where to find assistance and what can be done to help others.

"This service will provide yet another avenue for the sharing of important information that is so critical to ensuring the public is prepared for emergencies," said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. "Oftentimes after a disaster, mobile devices become a crucial lifeline to provide information to survivors."
