Google Crisis Response Crisis Response

Response Efforts

We have been responding to natural disasters since Hurricane Katrina in 2005 by making information such as storm paths, shelter locations, emergency numbers, and donation opportunities easily accessible. Learn about our past responses.

Tools for Responders

First responders can use technology to streamline internal operations and get information to the public as quickly, broadly, and effectively as possible. We’ve published some solutions to help responders achieve these goals.

We partner with government agencies, NGOs and commercial organizations. If you are an organization that publishes authoritative emergency information, let us know who you are by completing this form today.

Public Alerts

Being prepared is just as important as knowing what to do in a crisis. Public Alerts provide a warning before disasters cause damage, and information on how to stay safe.
