Emergency Preparedness Mobile App
The City and County of Honolulu Emergency Management Agency commissioned UpTop to design and build the State of Hawaii’s official emergency preparedness iOS and Android mobile app – “Ready Hawaii”. The purpose of the “Ready Hawaii” app is to provide the public with a free Hawaii-specific app that provides easy access to vital emergency preparedness information. Base code was provided by the state of Georgia, which required significant updating to work with current operating systems.
The UX and Visual Design required major updates to align with the requirements unique to Hawaii along with providing a local look and feel. This app provides emergency planning information and real-time emergency alerts for tsunamis, earthquakes, and other emergencies.
