Every year, the American Red Cross responds to more than 70,000 disasters in the U.S.–helping those affected receive food, shelter, medical supplies and more. With the sheer number of disasters that occur daily, they sought assistance identifying them and organizing relief.
Fusion92 developed a web-based application called DASh, an analytics dashboard that monitors activity on the Red Cross website. The app displays color-coded overlays on states experiencing unusual donation activity or web traffic, providing early disaster detection and insights to responders.
DASh is a first-of-its-kind alert system, helping reshape the way disasters are identified and relief is managed. In the process, it’s become an indispensable tool for responders.
