Accurate, Resident-Provided Data on Interactive Maps

With Rave Prepare, residents submit medical information and access or functional needs through an online portal for emergency planning, response and recovery. During a disaster or catastrophic event such as the Coronavirus pandemic, emergency managers can easily identify residents in need of assistance, communicate with them, and assign the appropriate resources to send help.

Rave Prepare Features

Crowdsourced National Online Database

Rave Prepare leverages Smart911, a national database of community member data, to connect with 9-1-1 centers and provide critical information to first responders and emergency managers. Individuals can opt-in to provide Smart911 information through an online portal and because the database is national in scope, it helps help facilitate interoperability on the local, regional, and national levels.

Targeted Two-Way Communications

Send targeted alerts based on needs and location. When an emergency event occurs, use interactive maps to target your audience by geography and special need. For example, you could send a poll question by text, email, and voice to your at-risk segment to determine their need and ask for a response.

Benefits of Rave Prepare

Rave Prepare provides an interactive web-based map interface that allows emergency managers to create queries by demographics or location to single out any group or segment in need of assistance.

Rave Prepare enables you to plan ahead and proactively respond to disasters and other emergencies, including power outages, transportation interruptions, evacuations, community health crises, pandemics and shelter resource planning.

Data Privacy & Security

Rave Prepare provides key features to ensure data privacy and protects both individuals and agencies collecting personal data as part of an access and functional needs registry. All data is stored in top tier, geo-redundant hosting facilities, with the same encryption and security utilized by leading financial institutions and federal agencies.

Unlimited Administrators

When combining Rave Prepare with Rave Alert, the mass notification system, unlimited administrators across departments can leverage internal and external notifications for personnel updates like shift call outs, office closings, weather notifications, and more.
