The Challenge | Don’t Forget the Can Opener!

Create an easy-to-use way for people to develop their own, custom checklists – both items and plans – for specific kinds of disasters. Use NASA images, videos, or data visualizations to illustrate each disaster type, to help people understand how to prepare.

-What we are going to build-

The problem we try to solve is that people keep struggling difficult situations due to natural disasters because a lack of information.

We propose an app that informs to people about the available alerts in their area in advance providing:

  • information about the disaster
  • safety tips
  • first aid techniques
  • direct call to emergency number
  • proposing some useful items that you can buy to be prepared.
  • request/provide help from/to others.

-How we are going to build it-

Hybrid application using ionic, cordova and vue. That basically means that it is a webapp encapsulated to simulated native apps for ios, windows and android. We have decided this to prototype our app because it is fast and easy.

We use a gitlab repository
