The Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management on Monday released a free mobile app, ReadyHarris, just in time for hurricane season. The app helps Harris County residents build a personal preparedness plan and get real-time updates during emergencies.

"Every minute counts when severe weather, or any emergency, threatens our community," said Harris County Judge Ed Emmett. "This app empowers residents to make a personal plan and receive life-saving information at their fingertips."

The ReadyHarris app delivers real time weather alerts, hosts a step-by-step guide to building a personalized family disaster plan, offers survival tip sheets, maps evacuation routes and locates local emergency services. The app is available in both English and Spanish.
