The organization’s that Humanitarian Software work with make it their mission to aid those in need.
Since the national tragedy of 9/11 the United States government and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has made September a month to spread awareness for disaster preparedness efforts.
The organizations that we work with are among the first to provide aid to those who need it, however much of their work is spent building preparedness and awareness for how to cope with disasters so that damage can be mitigated.
In the wake of hurricane Dorian spreading knowledge on how to best cope with disaster striking your home or community is more important then ever for the next possible disaster.
How can you learn more and become prepared for the worst?

FEMA has an in depth guide to disaster preparedness evaluation available here, as well as many other resources on their site.
