One of our staff members recently came across an iPhone app called Democri-C™ that was developed from a community service project with the following Project Mission; “Communications is a right for every person. No person should be limited from communicating in crisis situations by money or politics. This project will deliver a free communications system for mobile and stationary users worldwide. Everyone who wants to use this network will be able to use it without charge.”
There are both commercial and individual product applications available — Click here for more details and information.
Be sure to check out the video demonstration on their homepage, (on the bottom of the page) and, if applicable, please pass this along to those business continuity and risk management planning teams as well as those first responder and crisis communication team members in your organization.
