JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - MS Ready is the Mississippi State Department of Health’s emergency preparedness mobile app.

The most recent version offers a one-touch “I’m Safe” message that can be shared via social media, text or email; location-based NOAA weather alerts an audible siren that automatically sounds if a tornado warning is issued for your area, even when the app is closed.

The app also provides a full library of disaster preparedness tips. Other features include step-by-step preparations against floods; severe weather; natural disasters; nuclear incidents and chemical and biological threats. There’s also a list of important phone numbers and an emergency hotline.

The app is available free through your app store for both Apple and Android mobile devices. To find it, search your app store for MS Ready or visit www.HealthyMS.com/apps .
