Disaster Information Management Resources
The Disaster Information Management Resource Center at the U.S. National Library of Medicine provides a number of great tools:
- Disaster apps for your ‘Digital Go-Bag’. There are a lot of great apps and tools compiled here that can provide helpful information from your mobile device, or laptop in the field. Many of the apps allow for download of information in advance, so that it would be available during an emergency if the internet is not accessible. Categories include: CBRNE and Hazardous Substances, Medical and Health Information, Responder Support and Safety, Psychological Health Tools, U.S. Federal Organizations, American Red Cross Suite of Apps, and Surveillance and Alerts.
- Note the following two CBRNE/Hazardous Substances apps: WISER to help identify unknown, potentially hazardous chemical substances, and REMM for identifying and responding to potential radiation incidents.
