Ready Georgia mobile app named top digital health resource

The Ready Georgia mobile app has been honored as one of the country’s best digital health resources, earning a Silver Award in the Web Health Awards | MOBILE competition.

The app, developed by the Georgia Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security (GEMA) and Department of Public Health (DPH), was recognized in the Mobile Application: Location-Based Resource category.

The mobile app, available for iPhone and Android devices, supports the Ready Georgia mission to encourage residents to prepare, plan and stay informed for emergencies.

From up-to-the-minute, geo-located weather and hazard alerts to customizable emergency preparedness checklists, the app includes a robust set of features that make it easier for residents to prepare and stay informed about weather- and health-related threats.

“We are honored that health professionals recognize the value of the Ready Georgia app,” said DPH Commissioner Brenda Fitzgerald. “There are a variety of innovative health-related apps in the marketplace, and to be selected as one of the best is a great endorsement of what we have created.”

“This award is very gratifying, because it confirms what we’ve believed about this app from the beginning – it is a highly effective tool for preparing and informing Georgia residents about emergencies,” said GEMA/Homeland Security Director Charley English.
