Sometimes disaster relief doesn't need the national guard, it just needs the community. In a time of confusion, following a natural disastor, such as a tornado, often a relief centre will have resources which are opaque to the co-ordinating team.

This suite comprises of a client application which runs on a handheld device, a server which monitors requests for help, and utilises cutting edge solutions from Pusher.com and what3words.com to enable resource to be used efficiently, quickly, and with the minimum of human action.

We built a framework in nodejs and the client app in android studio

The timescale meant that some elements of hooking up the applications were not completed, we hope that the solution is apparent where these connections are made.

Creating a intuitive system to co-ordinate relief in a short amount of time.

What I learned

Package it into a freely available suite to be deployed by local authorities as a step 1 of disaster management.
