Preparedness is Everyone’s Responsibility
To help residents, visitors, and businesses prepare for a natural disaster or other emergency situation, the Arlington County Office of Emergency Management has created the Arlington Prepares app to help you:
By knowing where to get information, having the right supplies, and having a plan for you, your loved ones, and your pets, you can protect yourself and your family. The tools in this app help ensure that no matter where you are or what you are doing you'll be prepared when a crisis happens.
Please let us know how we can improve this app and bring you more important mobile tools to improve life in Arlington County: Email your feedback.
Q1) How do I display the application in Spanish?
A1) The application responds to your phone's language settings. If your phone is set for English, the app will display in English. If your phone is set to Spanish, then the app displays in Spanish.
Q2) What was used to create this app?
Q3) Why do you ask me to grant permissions to the application when I download it?
A3) The application checks to see if your phone is on a network, and if so, makes a connection to see if there is updated information to download and downloads it. It also allows you to grab contacts from your address book and store then in our app, and save contacts created in our app to your address book. No information that you enter into the app is stored at all by Arlington County.
