Share Article

Just in time before the Hurricane season begins and 100s of 1000s of people could face an emergency evacuation. The first national online registry service that stores and maps personal data related to the special needs and elderly population has arrived and is ready for use! SNAPev™ (Special Needs Assistance Program EVERYWHERE) will provide first responders and public safety agencies around the clock access to the information in order to expedite an efficient evacuation.

SNAPev "Peace of mind for a buck"

SNAPev™ was developed by MBM Solutions. MBM Solutions is a Louisiana-based technology company specializing in providing innovative IT solutions; emergency & disaster management consultative services; and GIS strategies. “Our practical experience of living through major disasters and being a previous evacuee from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita prompted us to create a product that would make the evacuation process less stressful and troublesome for the evacuee and their relatives”, says David Moss, the company’s CEO. “MBM further distinguishes itself from competitors by eliminating the need for a major investment in equipment because we host the system. Additionally, our information integrates into multiple government systems and we provide the on ground registration of individuals. MBM Solution’s array of services is designed to support our client’s desires to create interoperable software solutions”, says Benjamin Curtis, the company’s VP of Business Development.

SNAPev™ can inform family members of the exact location (hospital, shelter, church, school, etc.) of where their evacuated members are being assisted during an emergency or evacuation. Most importantly, first responders, shelter providers and emergency personnel will have enough information ahead of time to properly prepare for persons with special needs and the elderly. That means sufficient medications; medical devices & equipment can be moved to the evacuation facility in order to provide continued care. SNAPev™’s most distinguishable feature is its text alert and notification feature. The system can instantly notify next of kin or any designated person that the registrant is being relocated or is in need of special attention. SNAPev™ should be the key component of any emergency management plan because of its unique functionality and low cost-- $12 a year.
