Known for its palm trees and sunny beaches, San Diego County is an image of paradise. But the county is not immune to emergencies. The most serious and recurring threat is wildfires.

The county found a way to disseminate critical emergency preparation information to a wider public via SD Emergency, a mobile app.

The app enables the county to provide in-depth information to help citizens prepare in advance of an emergency and delivering alerts during an event. The solution works across multiple operating systems, making the app available on many different devices.
