Will County launches emergency preparedness smartphone app


Ready Will County will enable residents to create portable emergency plan


     The Will County Emergency Management Agency has announced the launch of a new emergency preparedness smartphone app entitled Ready Will County. This application will enable residents to create and manage personal emergency plans in the palm of their hand.

     “Almost everyone has a smartphone these days, and the capacity of these phones is increasing rapidly,” said Will County Executive Larry Walsh. “You can manage your schedule and personal information from your phone, so it makes sense to have your emergency plans and information readily accessible through your phone, too.”

     The Ready Will County app allows users to create individual and family emergency plans, which include important data such as emergency phone numbers. The app contains information on local hazards including tornadoes, terrorism events, and public health emergencies. During emergencies, maps can be turned on to provide information on important information such as road closures and shelter locations. The map also shows locations of local police and fire stations.

     "The new Ready Will County app has a wealth of information and features to keep residents informed in the event of an emergency," said Will County Board Public Health and Safety Committee Chairwoman Judy Ogalla. "Today, people are very mobile and always connected. Having all this information conveniently available through a smartphone app will give residents one less thing to worry about should an emergency occur."

     Residents can download the app from the Apple App store and the Google Play store. Search for keywords Ready Will County.
