INDIANA (WANE) – The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has launched a reporting app to report all types of situations, including major auto accidents, hazardous chemical spills, suspicious activity, damage, flooding, and other forms of severe weather.
The Department has launched the app in light of expected severe weather in southern Indiana this weekend.
“Technology is being used every day to help move more information faster,” Indiana Governor Mike Pence said in a press release. “This app allows citizens to share data in a quick, effective manner and provides the State with knowledge on a wide-range of situations.
The state homeland security’s Director Public Affairs, John Erickson said the app is not a substitute for emergency phone numbers.
The app “Indiana Homeland Security Report Hazards” can be downloaded for free on Apple and Android system smartphones.
