types of mobile phone devices or OS types or versions
because of SMS function has been applied to most mobile phone for a long history.
So, even elderly person can recognize and use it compared to email or other Social Network Services.

Also, SMS will show notification popups to mobile devices for recognizing everyone

How I built it

  • IBM blumix Node-RED starter (Including node.js, cloudant NoSQL Database)
  • Twilio (TEL/SMS etc.) API

Challenges I ran into

Creating service even I had never used NoSQL, node.js before.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Including our teams accomplishments in a SMS message

  • SMS including Evacuation, AED and Medication location map
  • Help service phone number to the citizen’s mobile

What I learned

IBM bluemix + Node-RED starter is a great tool which can create an application in really short time. It makes you can challenge to new programming languages, new API to create systems that you are hesitated, because of heavy duty and difficult configuration to develop the infrastructure.
Also, creating one Node-Red examples, you can flexibly apply with other proposes. switching databases or changing relations.(e.g. To inform storm coming in Other cities)

What's next

Creating API
