Earthquake Detection Warning
When an earthquake is detected, you and your family members will receive an alert. Your phone will ring, vibrate and flash, overriding any silence setting to make sure you receive the notification. The alert will include a countdown timer specifying the time until the shaking starts, information on the earthquake epicenter and an estimate of the earthquake magnitude.
While you’re moving to a safer spot before the shaking starts, EchoQuake is recording family members’ last known locations. This information, paired with offline stored data, will be used to enact your emergency plan by giving directions from your current location to the emergency meet up location. Your family’s emergency contact will also be notified of the earthquake and will be given information of everyone’s last known location.
