Basically the improved emergency GPS alert system would connect all emergency responders, safe shelters, and civilians.  

Covering the following:

1. Ensure disabled civilians are priority

2. Create a database for elderly, disabled and special needs response needs.

3. Create a GPS interactive web tracking map of the city which dispalys user location and nearest safe shelter.

4. GPS provides directions to get to safe shelter.

5. Website has ability to notify family members.

6. Safe shelters have ability to notify family members.

7. Emergency GPS Safe Shelter Application is made available nationally.

8. Updates are shown on Freeways, Billboards, TV and Cell phones.

9 The Application created works bi directional.

10. Lives are saved.

Michael Holt Hi Michael! Thank you for posting! I am a Michigan Central Station Challenge facilitator. Emergency response is such an important topic to talk about. Can you tell me a little bit more about what you have observed about the current state of the emergency response system in Detroit? What are the frustrations that inspired you to post about this topic?
