The key to responding to a disaster is being prepared
HelpBridge is a useful part of your disaster preparation but you also need to think about what other ways you can get prepared ahead of an unexpected event.
For example, what are the key documents that you should back up online so you can access them from any location? Have you thought about completing a family emergency plan? What about your pets? There’s some good tips and resources here.
HelpBridge is a useful tool to help you get help and give help during a disaster. Download the app today as part of your disaster preparedness.
As Petra Nemcova, a disaster survivor and founder of Happy Hearts Fund noted:
“We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn’t have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.”
Note: HelpBridge is only available in the United States.
