LastQuake

EMSC
LastQuake is the official phone application of the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC). Designed by seismologists, the LastQuake application is dedicated to alerting populations and gathering testimonies in real time. In only a few minutes, EMSC is thus able to estimate earthquake effects.

** WHAT IS THE EMSC? **
EMSC is an international non-profit scientific NGO founded in 1975. Based in France, EMSC federates data from the seismological observatories of 86 institutes from 57 countries.

** AN INNOVATIVE EARTHQUAKE DETECTION METHOD **
The peculiarity of EMSC lies in its method of earthquake detection, which is based on:
- Earthquake witnesses, who are the first to feel an earthquake, and therefore the first informed that an event is happening.
- Internet and mobile technologies, which allow rapid information collection of the effects observed by witnesses, who are asked to fill in a questionnaire and share photos and videos.

** COMMITMENT TO POPULATIONS AFFECTED BY EARTHQUAKES **
Because information and communication are cornerstones in preventing risky behaviors, EMSC contributes to the reduction of seismic risk by providing to the general public:
- real-time information
- Post-earthquake safety tips
- SMS service that allows victims to notify their loved ones.

** PRINCIPAL FEATURES **
* Real-time information and data
* Customizable notifications (destructive earthquakes, earthquakes near you)
* Access to comments, photos and videos by witnesses
* Allows the sharing of information on social media
* Can send SMS to your loved ones if you are in the area impacted by an earthquake
