We got a crash course in recovery when an EF3 tornado scrambled our town. Groups like the Red Cross bring resources into town, but don’t collect donations, don’t organize volunteers, and don’t stay. Untrained community members are tasked with all of the long-term organizing and given no tools. We can launch TownName.Recovers.org in 2hrs, providing searchable databases, social media aggregation and mobile apps, allowing local organizers to efficiently marshal resources.
