Yesterday, FEMA took a step to put more tools in your hands by launching
m.fema.gov, a new mobile website. FEMA recognizes that when it comes to
disasters, many individuals are going to try to get the information they
need by using their mobile device--so they're rolling out this mobile
version of their website so people can get the information they need
when disaster strikes.
The new site - m.fema.gov - is laid out in a user friendly, question and
answer format, walking users through the important issues they face when
dealing with disasters, including:
-How do I apply for FEMA Aid?
-What should I do in a disaster?
-How can I help others?
This is just a first step. They will be making several enhancements to
m.fema.gov in the coming months, including the ability to apply for
individual assistance when a disaster has been declared by the
President, check on the status of an application and update an existing
application. And they will keep improving the site, working to ensure
that Americans have easy access to the tools they need to prepare for
and, when needed, recover from a disaster in their community.
Yesterday's launch of m.fema.gov comes with just over a month remaining
until the start of hurricane season on June 1. Everyone is encouraged
to visit FEMA: Mobile on their iPad or iPhone mobile device and
learn more about the simple steps you can take to make sure you and your family are ready.
