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, emergency managers easily identify residents in need of assistance, communicate with them, and assign resources to send help.
The interactive web-based map interface 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:
Rapidly identify and locate individuals who have critical medical dependencies on electricity, such as ventilators, kidney dialysis, or medications requiring refrigeration.
Locate those individuals who require assistance due to mobility limitations or transportation challenges and plan for any necessary transportation resources.
Determine which residents have critical needs such as kidney dialysis, home healthcare, and in-home oxygen requirements that will go unmet during a sustained transportation disruption.
Obtain important information such as language spoken in advance of a disaster to provide resources the community will need during an incident requiring emergency sheltering.

Leverage Rave Prepare to send targeted alerts based on needs and location. When an emergency event occurs, you can utilize interactive maps to target your audience by geography and special need.
Send the right actionable message to each individual rather than a broadcast notification. 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.
