Describe Your Solution:
By having a Recovers site deployed before a disaster, a community will be able to recover more efficiently. We have seen that 70% of all of the online interest in helping a community (donations and volunteers) happens in the first 4-7 days after a disaster. Having a website up and running, with SEO optimization, will help you collect all of this interest. And even though you don't need all of the donations and volunteers in the first week after a disaster, you will need them in the coming months and years. A Recovers site allows a community to collect this interest and use it later in the recovery, when it is needed.
Finding reliable recovery information after a disaster is a problem. A Recovers site serves as a hub for reliable recovery information that can be accessed by any one, any time.
We have found that local organizations (non-profits, faith-based organizations, and businesses) do the majority of disaster recovery organizing. Unfortunately, there are no tools currently available to organizations manage recovery efforts. Therefore, they usually turn to Facebook, Twitter, and Google Docs to solve their problems. A Recovers site solves this problem by giving organizations easy-to-use tools to manage donations and volunteers to help meet the needs of their community.
