Georgians have a new resource at their fingertips when they need information about a disaster or emergency, Governor Sonny Perdue announced. Developed at the governor's request, the newly launched Georgia911.org serves as a gateway to information regarding response and recovery activities, providing real-time information and a comprehensive list of available assistance during an emergency or disaster.
"The unprecedented magnitude of Hurricane Katrina and its impact on our state required the coordination of several agencies and the timely dissemination of resources and information," said Governor Sonny Perdue. "Georgia911.org is a valuable resource that brings together government, the private sector and the volunteer community to strengthen the state of Georgia's preparedness capabilities."
The site is divided into six major sections, each of which is clearly displayed and visitors can find anything they may need in less than three clicks. This information portal will provide real-time weather, traffic, evacuation, shelter and threat-level status reports during an active disaster or emergency. Resource links were provided by various local, state, federal, faith-based and volunteer organizations.
