Help Is in Your Hand: Developing Red Cross Emergency Apps (2/27)

When Superstorm Sandy hit, tens of thousands of people turned to a new resource for details about storm conditions, available shelters, first aid, and even gasoline pick-up sites. The resource? Mobile apps developed by the American Red Cross.

Matt Goldfeder, Senior Director of Mobile Product Development, and Dominick Tolli, VP of Product Management, will visit UMBC from the American Red Cross on Wednesday, February 27, to discuss these revolutionary apps.

Goldfeder and Tolli’s talk will explore the design and use of mobile apps to provide the public with emergency preparedness, emergency response and bystander first aid guidance. All are welcome to attend the talk on 2/27, 3:00-5:00 p.m. in AC IV Room 305. Questions? Email Rick Bissell (bissell@umbc.edu) of UMBC’s Emergency Health Services Dept.
