DKI Partners with the Red Cross Emergency App
April 27, 2015 – DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, today announced its new partnership with the American Red Cross through the organization’s free 24/7 Emergency App, available on all smartphones and tablets.
The new app provides instant access to customizable weather and emergency alerts for locations anywhere in the United States, keeping you and your loved ones safe. With 35 different emergency alerts to monitor multiple locations from anywhere in the U.S. and the “Family Safe” feature, the Emergency App allows you to stay connected with your family and friends during an emergency, even if the recipient has not downloaded the app.
The “Family Safe” feature, which allows users to instantly contact loved ones after alerts are issued in their area, is also available on the new Apple Watch, which launched on April 24th.
The Emergency App, which works anywhere in the U.S., is a one-stop source for 14 different types of emergencies, including natural and man-made disasters. It not only alerts activity in an area, but also features a map of Red Cross shelters, a “Make a Plan” feature with information on what to do and where to go if a disaster strikes, as well as embedded content, allowing access even without a mobile data connection.
DKI is very excited to be partnering with the Red Cross as its exclusive sponsor for this innovative app.
“We help restore lives and properties, and this includes keeping the public aware of potential disasters. We are certain this app will be beneficial, allowing friends and families to stay connected during stressful situations,” said Jessica Nielsen, DKI’s AVP of Marketing.
Access the Red Cross Emergency App by downloading it from the app store on your smartphone or tablet, or by going to redcross.org/apps.
