Perimeter is an all-risk solution app that addresses challenges emergency managers and first responders face during day-to-day operations and disasters. It empowers first responders to address the most critical disaster response and recovery aspect: life safety. The app originated as a research project at UC Berkeley, where its creator first recognized the need for new communication tools in public safety. Three years later, a team of Berkeley graduates continues to strive to help responders keep themselves and their communities safe.

The Perimeter Platform aids public safety by providing critical information like evacuation notices, road closures, and shelter locations on its user-friendly county map. The platform’s evacuation management system enables public safety personnel, news agencies, and residents to share the most up-to-date information easily. With no sign-up or opt-in required, individuals can visit Perimeter’s public map to see if they are in an impacted area during an emergency incident and learn how best to act. Additionally, Bailey has won the title of Miss San Francisco and is in the running for Miss America. For more information, visit the Perimeter Platform.
