(KFVS) - The Illinois Emergency Management Agency recently launched a new mobile version of the Ready Illinois website.
The mobile site, m.ready.illinois.gov, lets mobile device users to access information about emergency preparedness and recovery, weather and man-made hazards and updates on current disasters automatically through their smartphone or tablet.
“This new mobile site provides much of the same information as our Ready Illinois website in a mobile-friendly format,” said IEMA Director Jonathon Monken. “People can now check out how to develop an emergency supply kit or family communications plan when they’re sitting in a waiting room, riding a train or even relaxing at one of the state’s many recreational sites. And the mobile website will be particularly helpful during disasters by enabling people to get real-time updates about shelters, road closures and other critical information.”
