The Red Cross Hazard App

 The Hazard App is a free life-saving app for smartphones and tablets. Authorised agencies send emergency alerts via cellular data ensuring you receive the alert as quick as possible. You can configure alerts for up to 5 locations at a time, allowing you to be warned of emergencies in your current location and where friends and family live. 

The app helps you identify, prepare and respond to hazards in New Zealand. The app is pre-loaded with information about hazards including floods, earthquakes, tsunami, fire, weather, epidemics and biosecurity risks. 

The app is available in the app store on both Apple and android phones.
