In case you missed the April 24th webinar presented by Russ Deffner on using DepictionPrep and Depiction for personal and family preparedness, the recording is now available on our website and can be found here.
Depiction Inc., an Everett-based software firm, has donated 500 software licenses valued at $15,000 for its Depiction Prep software in support of the American Red Cross’s “Safe In The Sound” program. The software will in turn be donated to interested non-profit organizations who participate in Red Cross’s preparedness outreach program “Safe in the Sound”. Eligible organization include: non-profit organizations dealing with vulnerable populations, organizations that serve senior citizens, churches, schools, and other similar organizations who participate in Red Cross community disaster education programs.
Depiction software allows anyone to plan, prepare, and respond to disasters and other events that might otherwise impact employees and the company’s ability to stay in business. It allows businesses, schools and non-profits to develop their own disaster plans—a critical need in the face of almost any crisis situation.
“We’re extremely pleased to partner with Depiction,” said Red Cross Regional Executive Chuck Morrison. “Having these licenses will allow us to help local groups prepare to handle flooding, earthquakes, fires, and other major disasters – almost any emergency likely to strike this region.”
The software will help organizations:
- Put together an emergency kit
- Track the kit digitally; stock it with detailed area preparedness maps, food and water.
- Make a plan
- Determine where to meet if you can’t get home;
- Determine the best route between home, school and work if the major roads are blocked
- Stay informed
- See the potential hazards in your area, and play ‘what if?’ with possible disasters and scenarios.
- Become involved
- Put together a map your neighborhood preparedness training.
Snohomish County organizations interested in discussing their need for a license to use this software should send an email to Chuck Morrison (firstname.lastname@example.org).
