During an emergency or crisis, your first thought may be to search for news about the crisis online. Recognizing this, Google has created the Google Crisis Preparedness site, which provides information and education on emergency situations as well as how to use technology for crisis preparation.

The Google Crisis Preparedness site offers information on how you can use Google tools, such as Google Docs, My Maps and Google Earth, in the event of a crisis. The site also features stories and personal accounts from people who have overcome major crises, such as the Japanese earthquake and the Missouri tornadoes. Further, a section of the site is dedicated to ‘Get Tech Ready,’ an initiative created in cooperation with the American Red Cross, FEMA and the Ad Council, which helps visitors find tips on how to prepare, adapt and recover from disasters using technology.
