VisionLink OEM Shelter

By VisionLink, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


This free application provides quick insight into disaster shelters as they are opened across the United States.

Shelters are only displayed if they are active and open. Shelter managers open and close shelters on the National Shelter System as appropriate to local needs and the information is updated from every active shelter at least once a day. This information is then conveyed to many different applications, including this app. Shelters that are not open are not displayed.

Zoom in to the local area. Details include the agency managing the shelter, capacity of the shelter and current population, the associated disaster event, the time of the last update, the specific shelter address and driving directions from your location.

View open shelters by state, jump to the latest disaster information via the Red Cross Disaster Online Newsroom, and donate to help the American Red Cross respond to those in need.

This application uses data about open shelters from the American Red Cross National Shelter System (NSS). The NSS contains information about more than 60,000 potential disaster facilities and is used to track and report on shelter information during disasters.

This application is deployed by VisionLink®, a firm specializing in enterprise software (CommunityOS™) for multi-agency client and case management, community resource management and referral, and disaster relief solutions. VisionLink operates the National Shelter System for the American Red Cross as part of its national disaster response platform.

Customer Reviews

Does what it says

Shows any shelters open in the U.S. during emergencies. Even if nothing’s happening in your area, the map is informative as to what’s going on nationwide.

Needs work

User interface extremely laggy. I am currently about to be hit with a cat 4 hurricane in Florida and this app shows some shelters on the west coast. Fix it but don't put up half baked apps.

Doesn't work

I can't even find a way to get the map to change from Salt Lake City to Michigan.
