Tech Talk: The City of Jacksonville prepared for hurricane season with a new app

The City of Jacksonville has launched their first mobile application to keep local residents informed and help them prepare for emergencies in their city. The app, called JaxReady, was developed by the city at no cost to taxpayers and is offered as a free download for iPhone and Android phones.

JaxReady was launched in May in preparation for hurricane season in Florida. The app helps residents monitor fire and weather threats, evacuation alerts, register for emergency alerts, and provides quick links to emergency services.

The Red Cross is using similar applications to track hurricanes and provide first aid tips to users.
