  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organization: American Red Cross
  • Priority: Medium

Fires regularly occur in urban slums, often resulting from indoor stove use, trash burning, faulty wires and residents trying to keep warm. Rapid, unplanned development forces homes close together and allows fire to spread easily. Pathways between homes are narrow and often blocked, making evacuations chaotic and dangerous. Residents commonly do not know who to call for firefighting assistance, and if firefighters are available they have a difficult time finding and responding to fires quickly.

Red Cross Partners are piloting a project to solve this issue; a low-cost, smart home sensor system that is solar-powered and affixed to each home within the informal settlement.

These maps we will be creating will directly help for program planning and decisions making, Additionally they will be used by the firefighters to effectively reach the fires in time to save lives and property.

Please map all buildings building=yes and roads.
