Resources & Support for Japan Earthquake

Thoughts and prayers to those impacted by Japan's earthquake and tsunami.  

For those trying to reconnect friends and family, use the Red Cross Safe and Well site via the web or mobile (deployed on VisionLink's CommunityOS software).

For official updates on the nuclear reactors in Japan, go to International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA; the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, NISA; and to the Tokyo Electric Power Company for a list of regular updates.

For general information on recent disasters, go to the RedCross Newsroom or to main FEMA site.

Along the western coast of the USA, 2-1-1 call centers were engaged providing information to the public; we are proud to support this work directly in San Diego, and the Bay Area with CommunityOS software.

Many avenues to donate are available.  One of the easiest ways to donate $10 is by texting REDCROSS to 90999.  Or, you can go to this web link to make a donation to the Red Cross in any amount and for various causes: ARC Donation Site.


These days remind us of our common humanity, and the need for communities both prepared and resilient.

Welcome to Wyoming 2-1-1

We are pleased to announce that the good folks in Wyoming have launched their 2-1-1 state wide system using VisionLink's CommunityOS solution.

You can visit their site at: http://www.wyoming211.org, or by phone at 888-425-7138.



We are very pleased to support another statewide 2-1-1 initiative. Particularly during these tough economic times, 2-1-1 is an unusually effective and efficient method to connect needs with helpful resources. And these days, any disconnect between needs and resources turns issues into problems, and problems into crises. 

We will also be launching another new 2-1-1 system across much of Pennsylvania in the near future.  Stay tuned for updates!
