The problem we found is that in case of
emergency, such as a volcanic eruption, there’s people that don’t
know what to do or where to go during the emergency; also, not everyone knows
what to do BEFORE the emergency or how to prepare for said events. Moreover, we
thought about implementing a new protocol for emergencies, in which any organization can abide to in order to improve security and prevention in case
of disasters, giving indoor routes of evacuation from buildings, structures,
campuses, and any place out of the streets.
So, we came up with the idea to develop an
application to make people aware of all these things, using the information
This application will benefit the people providing them information of how to react and during a emergency.
What to do before, during, and after the eruption: Giving them directions of where to go (safe areas, routes), recommendations of what to do/don’t do, showing hazardous areas.
We focused in all these because in an emergency not all people can receive assist from professionals, are not able to watch or hear the media at the moment, or some people just don’t know what to do in these kind of situations.
Our application shows the nearest evacuation
routes available for people to safe areas and gives advice of what to do during
the emergency plus a news feed of relevant events.
now, we implemented an example of an imaginary emergency, in which the app show
us the nearest route to a safe area.
