I finalized a new Earthquake Insurance policy for this 6,000 square foot apartment building on the Esplanade in Redondo Beach this week. Keep in mind that standard property insurance policies exclude coverage for damages resulting from earth movement, including earthquakes. For you Californians out there, according to the US Geological Survey, there is a 60% chance that a 6.7 magnitude or greater earthquake will occur in California in the next 30 years.
Prepare personal emergency supplies for your desk and your car, including comfortable clothes and shoes, a flashlight and batteries, first aid kit, food, water, and necessary medications. Here is one idea: pair the information from the FEMA disaster declaration API with a real estate app.
Another idea: the FEMA disaster declaration API can be programmed into a spreadsheet along with long-term economic development data.
The Federal government has much information on disaster preparation and recovery from up-to-minute disaster notification services to rebuilding after a natural disaster.

Keep enough supplies for the number of workers that may need to shelter or work at your facility after an earthquake.
Of all of the mobile apps, I like the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Disaster Management Mobile App the best. Users could build a neighborhood profile that could advise prospective homeowners on potential natural disaster risks. Researchers could investigate how long it takes a disaster area to recover from a disaster and what types of grant programs and economic assistance were most effective. As the FEMA Mobile App shows, this information is perfect for APIs and apps to help the American public – especially if you live in a weather-rich location.
Visit this blog every week to learn how government APIs are transforming government and improving government services for the American people.
For some recent internal project research, I dove into some of the federal government-wide analytics looking at mobile usage and found a few interesting tidbits to share: It’s an OS battle of the As.

The FEMA Disaster Declaration Summary API lists all of FEMA’s disaster declarations since 1953. In-person attendees of the DigitalGov Citizen Services Summit can talk to the FEMA representatives who developed the app at the Summit Expo.
It has a good, clean design that is especially useful for people who need emergency information now!
The API has a simple set of fields including when the disaster was declared, the type of disaster declared, and the state where the disaster occurred. I could not find any evidence from the FEMA site to support this assertion, but I believe that the FEMA app designers did extensive user testing to determine the most needed tasks for a disaster app.
