It is critical for cities to have effective evacuation strategies in place for any given emergency that may arise. One key challenge is ensuring all citizens receive all the necessary information in a timely manner during evacuations.

Using a digital solution helps enable this process to become more efficient and reduce the challenges that come with spreading information during dire situations.
