This app is intended to be used after a mass casualty event. Disaster relief professionals can use the app to help them communicate with family members who have experienced the event, as well as people with special communication needs (people with cognitive disabilities, people who are deaf or hard of hearing, people with limited English proficiency, and anyone else having trouble communicating verbally).
Body
It suggests what to say to loved ones throughout the interaction and includes a language translation feature. Although it was developed in Massachusetts, the app can be used across the United States.
