Amazing systems for local disaster recovery

This is a very impressive video about 2 sisters and their response to a Tornado in their home town. As you watch, consider the following questions: would their technology be appropriate in all areas of the globe? Will there always be donations/volunteers? What enabled them and others to respond successfully?


  1. Amazing video. I think that disaster recovery services should be incorporated everywhere. For countries that do not have the means to carry such technology, I don't think that this would qualify. However, I think that every country should have a procedure in case of a disaster occurring.

  2. Agreed. Surely short term spending/preparation will make a huge difference in the long term, given the potential socioeconomic costs of major disasters. There is a chance for someone somewhere to be a world changer by developing an effective system for developing nations.
