Mobile Apps from the Red Cross are "more than just a pretty face"…

The American Red Cross has several options when it comes to putting preparedness in the palm of your hand. As I talk with people today about the flooding, it is a good opportunity to tell you how to get that free and lifesaving information.
Conway, MO – “Turn around, don’t drown”
The Tornado App, along with the other apps, can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross or by going to More information at this website will walk you through the steps to customize your alert locations as well.
From your mobile phone, call “**REDCROSS” (**73327677) and we will send you a link to download the app to your phone or you can download them directly from the iTunes or Google Play app stores.
But that’s not all…sure the app will let you know when the weather is bad, but not just tornado alerts. ALL warnings and watches are alerted by the FREE Red Cross Tornado app. The Red Cross preparedness apps not only give real time alerts for warnings and watches and help with preparedness before and recovery after information; it is also updated with open shelter locations, personalized local information and a connection to the “I’m safe” feature. a great resource for tips on how to prepare for and respond during a flood.
