The Will County Emergency Management Agency launched the smartphone app called ‘Ready Will County.’
By downloading, users can create individual and family emergency plans that include important phone numbers, health information and emergency contacts. They’ll also be notified when disasters like tornadoes, public health emergencies and even terrorism events strike.
Maps can also be enabled to provide information on road closures, shelter locations and the nearest location of police and fire stations.
And for planning purposes the app can walk you through what you need to pack in an emergency preparedness kit.
To download the app search ‘Ready Will County’ from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
