Disaster Alert is a free to download, global, multi-hazard monitoring and alerting application for both iOS and Android operating systems. Disaster Alert is accessible both on the web and though mobile app.

Disaster Alert is an initiative of the Pacific Disaster Center (PDC), which monitors various types of disasters using data collected by satellites. When people open the app or website through personal computer or mobile phone, they could quickly view hazards around the globe on the map. The design of the application also enables individuals to locate hazards in a specific area. 

On a policy-making level, PDC could provide vulnerability assessments that help decision makers to identify the scope and the magnitude of the negative impacts of hazards. Using images from satellites, PDC helps disaster managers to visualize the hazard characteristics and potential impacts of a disaster.
