The Apps are Coming! This month’s OES Newsletter has arrived!

April 29, 2013 
In light of the feedback from last month’s column titled “Social Media and Preparedness” this month we bring safety oriented apps for your smart phone or tablet computer! According to the Pew Research Center, 66% of young adults (age 18-29), 59% of adults (age 30-49) and 34% of older adults (ages 50-64) own a smart phone and use it to download applications (apps) and/or surf the internet. Even more telling is that an April 2012 Pew survey found 86% of Smartphone users have used their phones to get help in an emergency situation! Tablet computer use is also on the rise with 31% of adults reporting they use a tablet computer such as an iPad.
