HAZMAT Evacuation iPhone App

January 2011

The second app for the iPhone and iPod touch from Applied Research Associates is now available! The HAZMAT Evacuation application displays the isolation and protection zones for hazardous materials incidents on a street/satellite hybrid map. The app automatically retrieves current wind direction from the National Weather Service and the user's location from the device or first responders and other emergency personnel can specify their own conditions. Users can share the zones via email including images, shape files, and KML files. The app also includes a Material Guide with information and important chemical contacts for quick access.
