Disaster Response

Real-Time Incident Tracking: PubSafe’s live map integration provides real-time updates on incidents, including storm progress, evacuation routes, and shelter availability. During a hurricane, this feature becomes invaluable as it allows authorities to track the storm’s path and make informed decisions regarding evacuation orders and resource allocation.

Statistics: According to the National Hurricane Center, an average of 12 tropical storms develop each year in the Atlantic Basin, with 6 becoming hurricanes. In 2023 alone, hurricanes caused over $100 billion in damages in the United States.

Community Communication: PubSafe enables authorities to communicate directly with residents, providing crucial information such as evacuation notices, safety tips, and emergency contact numbers. Community members can also report incidents or request assistance through the app, streamlining communication channels.

Data: Studies show that effective communication during disasters can significantly reduce casualties. For example, during Hurricane Katrina, lack of communication and coordination led to delays in rescue efforts and increased the death toll. 

Resource Coordination: PubSafe facilitates coordination among first responders, volunteers, and organizations offering assistance. From medical supplies to search and rescue teams, resources are mobilized efficiently based on real-time needs and priorities.

Case Study: During the California wildfires of 2022, PubSafe helped coordinate the deployment of firefighting teams, evacuation support, and donations for affected communities, showcasing its effectiveness in crisis management.


Emergency preparedness is not just about planning; it’s about leveraging the right tools and technologies to ensure a swift and coordinated response when disaster strikes. PubSafe’s integrated platform equips communities and organizations with the tools they need to handle emergencies effectively, saving lives and minimizing damage.
