Get emergency alerts. Send I AM SAFE messages for friends and family. Monitor up to five locations (such as the home, the bach and the kids at uni). Step-by-step guides to assembling emergency survival items, making a getaway kit and creating a household emergency plan. Pre-loaded guides in case you lose mobile coverage.

And because it's just that cool, the app has a disaster toolkit including a torch, audible alarm and a strobe light (Yeah baby, bring on the 80s dance music).

Download the app free from the App Store or Google Play store on your smart phone.

Emergency information can also be found on this website, Facebook, Twitter. and your local radio station.
