Informing the Population: Mobile Warning Apps.
Workshop on Risk and Crisis Communication for Disaster Prevention and Management. Wilhelmshaven (27th April 2017)
Conference or Workshop Item, Bibliographie

Abstract

Catastrophes like the storms in Europe in spring 2016, but also terrorist attacks regularly not only lead to extensive monetary damage but also threaten human lives. In such situations, the population desires information about the status of damage and safe behaviours. Apps can address this potentially, but comparatively, record a low number of users. Based on Reuter et al. (2017), this article shows the importance of information in disaster situations and illustrates features from current mobile warning apps.
