Environment for Romania:
One-stop centralizer for all necessary info in the case of an earthquake
Panic sets in the immediate aftermath of a major disaster. It will become very difficult for anyone to remember on which website or platform they can find information about meeting points, where to go for help, what authorities they can talk to, and so on. Victims need a simple, handy tool that allows them to search for everything they need and receive simple, concise information or clear lists of NGOs, authorities or other entities that can help them. eCutremur is a centralizer for useful resources organized around a search engine that will help anyone find useful information in case of disaster - from hospitals, help centers, shelters, legal procedures, information related to intervention efforts, other useful digital apps etc.

All code written by the Code for Romania community is open-source. We aim to build, contribute to and encourage the development of Romania's code library to increase the quality of software solutions in the public space and beyond. Open source development increases the quality of the digital infrastructure built by digital actors, reduces costs by reusing code in different contexts, increases transparency, eliminates reliance on single providers and encourages the strengthening of contributor communities among specialists who can report errors or improve components and functionality.
