This solution makes use of personalized engagement automation, allowing relief organizations to react quickly and send out alerts.

How to Create the Notification System
This is a simple 3 step process, that can be completely customized to your organization’s needs. It is adaptable and can fit the requirements of any disaster or emergency.
Step 1- Identify Evacuees
A digital form is created, which allows the area’s evacuees to add themselves to an alerting list. This form can be accessed however the organization chooses, using methods such as a QR code, online links, or SMS messaging. All the evacuees who become a part of the list will have their contact details stored in one central location. They can also add their preferred contact method to ensure they receive the information during an emergency.
Step 2 – Multi-Channel Alerts
There are several ways alerts can be sent out during an emergency. Some of these include emails, texts, phone calls, and faxes. By adjusting to the evacuee’s preferences, they can rest easy knowing they will receive crucial information when needed.
Step 3 – Adaptability
Making sure the emergency response is ready to go and can adapt to any circumstances is a vital part of this digital solution. Time is valuable in these situations, so making sure the system can handle all aspects without error is important. This process can be adjusted to fit not only a wildfire emergency, but also other emergency scenarios that could occur.
