Google Public Safety Alerts Added To Google Maps
Google has launched a new tool to their Crisis Response Project: Google Public Alerts. This new platform is designed to bring relevant emergency alerts to the public such as natural disasters, severe weather, threats to public safety, and more.
The alerts are integrated into Google maps, and provide a time frame for the emergency, how severe it is, how soon it will strike, and how likely it is. Additionally, a detailed message is provided which further explains the emergency so the public may react accordingly.
