NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennesseans can download a new app for their iPhones and iPads called ReadyTN, a preparedness program developed by the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.
The app is available through the App Store or the iTunes store. The agency said in a news release that more than 15,000 users have downloaded the Android version of the app, which has been available since February.
ReadyTN will provide location-based information on severe weather, road conditions, open shelters and local government contacts. The app also provides preparedness tips for specific hazards and checklists for emergency kits.
