Bluewater Federal Solutions, part of the Tetra Tech Federal IT Group, supported the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to redesign and develop the new FEMA mobile app to support disaster survivors.
“We are proud to be critical enablers for the FEMA mission of helping people before, during, and after disasters.”
– Scott Rieger, Unit Operations Director, Tetra Tech Federal IT Group
Tetra Tech’s FEMA digital communications and content support services team contributed to the largest update to the FEMA mobile app in a decade. The new and improved FEMA mobile app for iOS and Android is designed to empower survivors, enabling informed decisions about disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. The updated app features improved look, feel, and functionality that aligns more closely with survivor feedback and current FEMA branding.
"We are proud to be critical enablers for the FEMA mission of helping people before, during, and after disasters,” said Scott Rieger, unit operations director in the Tetra Tech Federal IT Group. “This was a major team effort, and we are very excited about the improved features, capabilities, content, and mobile accessibility provided to the public with this release."
For the past year, our team has been working to redefine the mobile app, making it more intuitive, streamlined, and useful for community members while adhering to strict Department of Homeland Security (DHS) security, privacy, and accessibility requirements. The app includes a new software framework and architecture and a major redesign to improve the survivor experience.
Key new features include:
Tetra Tech has supported FEMA’s digital content and communications program since 2007. In addition to our FEMA mobile app support, we have spearheaded major redesign and feature improvement efforts for FEMA.gov, Ready.gov, FEMA Careers, Recovery.FEMA.gov, and DIAMOND. Tetra Tech’s disaster and emergency management experts also have decades of experience supporting FEMA short- and long-term recovery, mitigation, and preparedness programs.
