New mobile website available in emergencies
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Illinoisans can now use their smartphones or tablets to get information on emergency preparedness or where to get help in a disaster.
The Illinois Emergency Management Agency has activated a new mobile version of its Ready Illinois website. The site — m.ready.illinois.gov — has information about disasters, hazards and emergency preparedness and recovery.
Jonathon Monken, director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, said the mobile website will be particularly helpful during disasters. He said it will allow people to get real-time updates about road closures, shelters and other critical information. In addition to general preparedness information, the site includes a "How Do I?" section. It provides quick information on more than 40 topics, including pet emergency preparedness.
