Environment for Romania:
A management system for volunteers and resources in case of an earthquake
Solution is live
Immediately after an earthquake, everyone's main concern will be to save as many lives as possible. Beyond the support provided by the authorities, not all NGOs are aware when and how they can join in the help effort, and the status of emergency supplies might be unclear, incomplete or out of date. Resource & Volunteer Management (RVM) is a tool for managing volunteers and resources made available by civil society to the Department of Emergency Situations in the event of a major earthquake or other natural disaster. The app allows the management of stocks of available resources, their quantity, types of materials and storage, as well as the status of volunteers organized according to their skills and specializations.

Having such an app is a dream, there are few countries that have this and it is a welcome thing for any intervention coordinator. It will be very helpful, I thank those who contributed to its development.
