Natural disasters are very unpredictable and the ways information is spread and communication is handled only make a bad situation worse. On top of that, when the power goes out and cell service is down people are left without the use of the technology they depend on so much. Node uses mesh network technology to form a self-sufficient wireless network that users can access even when normal systems fail. Using our network, users can send emergency messages, see up-to-date news and alerts, find important resources, and find the safest routes all on one, reliable platform.
