The Federal Emergency Management Agency has created an app that provides disaster-preparedness safety tips and, for victims, the ability to apply for assistance. Available in English and Spanish, the FEMA App is designed to be helpful in the event of floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, terrorism and other disasters. Users can pull up a map and get directions to shelters and FEMA Disaster Recovery Center locations. There's also a checklist for emergency kits. Available for Android, BlackBerry, iPad and iPhone and in a mobile Web version, too.

re: 10 Helpful Apps From Uncle Sam
There are definitely some must-have apps in this listing. Every parent should have the FBI's Child ID app. And having lived through Hurricane Sandy this year, the FEMA app looks invaluable. The other one I think I will download onto my iPhone is the Red Cross's First Aid app, which could be a life saver.
