FEMA and Airbnb partnering to promote disaster preparedness

from IAEM

In efforts to strengthen their Disaster Response Program and the safety of their hosts and guests, Airbnb began collaborating with FEMA and the Ready campaign to better educate hosts on how to prepare for and respond to disasters. As a first step, more than 100,000 Airbnb hosts in hurricane-prone regions across the United States received hurricane preparedness information, including links to FEMA's Ready.gov website and simple steps to prepare themselves in the event a hurricane approaches their area. The company will also work with FEMA's private sector liaisons to receive real-time information during disasters, allowing them to more effectively deploy the Disaster Response Program in the areas where Airbnb hosts can be of the most help to survivors and responders. The Disaster Response Program makes it easier for Airbnb hosts to offer their space at no charge, supporting neighbors and relief workers following emergencies or disasters in their community. The program has been activated in such locations as Texas, Oklahoma, New York, and Nepal. more
