Web-based, Citizen-Provided Vulnerable Needs Registry
“Rave’s database and interactive maps help our dispatchers easily and rapidly identify, communicate, and proactively assist those who most need our help.”
Automatically Validated Online Database
24/7 Access to Individual Provided Registry Data
Collecting, updating, and managing registry information is expensive, time-consuming, and resource intensive. Consequently, paper and even online vulnerable needs registry information is often inaccurate, outdated, and rarely utilized.
With Rave Prepare, information is provided and kept current by your residents. Because Rave Prepare leverages Smart911, a national database providing additional data for 9-1-1, individuals can use one online portal to provide Smart911 information and opt-in to provide additional information to emergency managers. Because the database is national in scope, it facilitates interoperability on the local, regional, and national levels.
Residents provide any information they wish to share during emergency planning, response, and recovery efforts. Emergency managers can customize and add questions, categories, or other data input fields to collect specific information for their jurisdiction.
Information is stored in secure data centers where emergency managers can access it for better emergency planning and response. The information can be easily exported for use by other systems such as mass notifications or for tasks in incident management tools such as WebEOC.

Send Alerts Based on Needs and Location
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.
