FEMA launches apps and widgets to help with preparedness in the hurricane season


FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has launched mobile phone apps and associated widgets to assist with preparedness for the hurricane season.  Apps can be downloaded to mobile devices (iOS and Android) that will provide updates on weather and associated conditions.

Widgets are also provided to allow website owners to embed FEMA updates onto their website.  More information can be found at: http://www.fema.gov/

A widget is basically a small web page with text and links that can be placed on a website page. a widget provides a “window” to content on other sites so that website users can have direct access to updated information from an external site.
