Smart phones are amazing. They are only as smart as we allow them to be. One of my favorite questions to ask people is “What is their favorite app?” This is how I learned about mSecure and Evernote. These are my two favorite applications that make my life much easier. A fan of Starbuck’s, their app tracks my purchases for free beverages. Pandora is a great way to get music and Uber is amazing technology. The amount of information that is available at our finger tips is almost limitless.
Important information still exists outside of phone apps. I was waiting to pick up a police report at the Schuylkill Township yesterday. There was a rack of good, old fashioned brochures hanging on the wall. Two forms leapt out. (Leapt is such a funny word.) There was a brochure for www.specialneedspa.org. This is a place for people with special needs to register and provide important information to first responders in the event of an emergency. Do you know someone who would require special attention in the event they need to exit their home in the event of a fire?
The second brochure was a list of safety tips for seniors. Contained in the brochure is a list of “NEVERS.”
