CrisisCamp Ireland will having their next monthly meetup in 091 Labs on the 8th of December at 2pm.
At the first meetup on November 3rd, we jumped straight into actively helping out with Hurricane Sandy. The attendees were working with other tech-heads from around the world to try to provide as much info to those on the ground as possible.
These activities included:
- mapping the status of available communications between Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island e.g. telephone outages and wifi hotspots
- finding a disaster assessment maps for the different States affected
- working with the Department of Education on maps to get kids back to open schools on Monday
- working with the Greater New York Hospital Association on updating and mapping the status of the hospitals affected
