Confronting Crisis: Our Design
We took a user-centric approach, mapping the journeys of those faced with perhaps some of the most difficult days of their lives, to build a Drupal emergency site for organizations that are on the front lines.
Why Area Alert?
This Drupal distribution helps organizations to quickly build highly performant, low-cost, and easy-to-update emergency websites during the COVID-19 pandemic and other large-scale emergencies.
Built for Authors
Area Alert is built on top of Mediacurrent’s Rain install profile and comes with improved authoring out-of-the-box so that you can spend more time communicating and less time figuring out how to use your website.
Fast, Scalable Hosting
Our partner Pantheon is offering free scalable hosting for 90 days for all government, medical, and educational organizations who choose to set up this site, as well as for any non-profit organizations that are directly serving coronavirus-affected populations. You can get started with the click of a button and be confident that no matter how many people view your site at once, it will always be available.
Answers at the Forefront
News and Twitter Integration
We are proud to give back not just to the Drupal open source project, but to the network of local communities worldwide that may be able to make a difference with this site. You can get started for free and hosting is free for three months with Pantheon, for qualifying organizations. Get it on Drupal.org.
