  1. Hi - General info. request

    Hi, my name is Eammon Coughlin, I am a planner with the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission. We are currently drafting a Spontaneous Volunteer Management Plan Template to be used throughout the region. We have been asked to provide recommendations for online and software based volunteer management systems to aid in overall volunteer management, long term recovery, and donation management. I have a few questions about your system.

    Does Recovers.org....

    1. Allow municipalities/volunteer organizations to track and manage volunteers?
    2. Allow for tracking/documentation of volunteer hours to use in potential reimbursement from FEMA?
    3. Allow for tracking of monetary and equipment donations during a…

  2. UNL: Recovers + Open Source Design

    Greetings. My name is Brian Kelly and I am an architect and professor of architecture at the University of Nebraska. I am reaching out to your group after seeing the TED talk from Caitria and Morgan.

    Currently I am doing research into open source design and open access to design resources in situations where professional design services are not available or not appropriate due to issues of time, culture, availability or other such limitations which render it difficult. During the Fall semester of 2016, I will be coordinating an upper level interdisciplinary design studio here at UNL which will focus…

  3. An address for out of state people to send via Amazon.com

    Some of the needs could be fulfilled through Amazon. I would think supplying a way for outside the community would yield even further results. I cannot give much, but would be willing to buy some things on Amazon to send.

  4. What happens after I sign up to volunteer?

    Post more information on what happens after I sign up to volunteer. Will someone contact me if there is a need? Do I just show up at a time I have signed up for?

  6. I heard Caitlia on NPR and was very impressed

    Here in Ontario in 1998 we had the Ice storm that took down over 8800 hydro poles, + 7 inches of ice on roofs and roads impassable. Power in some cases was not restored for 28 or more days.

    Our community was well organized but still this was a storm of a lifetime, we used cell phones analog and CB radio's.

    But I agree on the need for a structure in case of emergency, more so today with things like Isis at our door.

    Anyway I just wanted to say you did a good thing...

    PS. I took my first…

  7. Community Resources Inventory.

    I need to develop a resource inventory for pre-disaster planning. Can recovers help? We need to know what heavy equipment is available and how to dispatch it, what restaurants can cook with gas when the power fails, who our HAMs are etc. This info needs to be available to the ICS.

  8. I live in England where we don't have much going wrong generally but what to dso if the rainy day comes my way?

    I look at weather charts a lot and have noticed a few oddities that appear in them when a disaster is imminent. (That region of the Rockies north of Seattle needs watching for instance.)

    So what do I do if I see something "interesting"?

  9. Have more Edit links to take one to the exact page

    From the Profile page, I wanted to update the location of my emergency supplies. The "Edit" button in that box took me to the Health page, because in the Profile, Emergency Supplies are lumped in with health-insurance and doctor info. It was hard (and slow) to find the right page where I could update my emergency supplies. Please provide an Edit link near each Profile field that takes one directly to the page where that field can be edited. Thanks! - Riley

  10. Fixing?

    If a person just wants to SEE up to date requirements, they should not have to give such personal information as their phone number, etc. The WISH LIST should be available with only a click or two.

  11. New Features

    A few other ideas after our admin conference call last night.

    Admins is misleading...

    Perhaps have people register as Residents, service providers, or POD's.

    When a resident logs in they would be asked to submit their needs and location.

    What a service provider logs in for the first time be asked to provide the services they can provide quantities available of that service at any given time location and duration that the services would be available, and their location.

    When the POD logs in for the first time They would be asked via check box to select what they had…

  13. just a tweek

    I see the number for FEMA here, what I don't see is the deadline to file for help from FEMA. It's July 31st. My family survived the May 3rd tornado and I cannot stress this enough. With all the things on those who lost their homes plate right now, that is too small of a window. We missed the deadline because we didn't know there was one and it really cost us. Posting that deadline will save someone a lot of grief. Please please please post it.

  14. Add a flag

    so as an admin, after I call someone, I might not want to place a comment underneath them for everyone to see, but it would be nice to have a simple "click to flag" to remind myself of who I have contacted already in the list.

  15. Remove Solicitation Footer

    It comes across as a little crass (Contact us for pricing!).

    Perhaps rename the button to "Explore Financing" or "Prepare your community" Just a hair more ambiguous.

  17. "Featured By"

    On your homepage, change "Featured By" to "Featured On" - it looks like you're being presented by CNN, TED, and the like.

  18. Multiple levels of Admins

    Multiple levels of admin capabilities would allow me to get more community organizers on board to help with need/aid matching, without allowing them to make drastic changes to the site's settings, giving them access to bulk emailing, etc.

  19. Where and what?

    If you can get a list with addresses of all areas victims can be helped: Shelter, food etc with a map perhaps. I can take them and get copies and hand them out. Even if they have a cell, they sometimes have no idea where to look. I know with my self in a crisis I appear to listen but hear nothing, so telling a person in passing will not stick.

    Make it link to your homepage - might as well make it a jpeg so you can fix the alaising.
