Kenya tool to help companies prepare for emergencies

After team members survived the Nairobi terror attack, Ushahidi released its new preparedness tool free, writes its CEO, NATHANIEL MANNING



Please go review your organisation’s emergency security plan. Ask simple questions. Do you have a tool, a process, a protocol to make sure everyone is okay? When was it last updated? Is everyone trained? I wrote a piece on the seven steps to building an effective emergency plan. Please use this and share it.

We’ve created a tool that we think will help, TenFour. There are many different ways to keep your people safe. So please figure out what works best for you. We are offering the pro version of TenFour for free for three months, to any organisations, communities, companies, schools, churches, or anyone else in Kenya who would like to test this tool out for preparedness. You can sign up using the coupon code BeSafeKenya.

Please take this moment to huddle with your team, office, community and make a plan. Preparing for a crisis may not seem urgent but it is incredibly important — a matter of life or death, in fact.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all Kenyans in the aftermath of this horrific attack, and heartfelt condolences to all who lost loved ones.
