Contact: Rob Shelt 561-712-6317

A Palm Beach County Disaster Assessment and Resource Tool App

Palm Beach County Department of Public Safety Division of Emergency Management is introducing a new smartphone application.  The app is called PBC DART (Palm Beach County Disaster Assessment and Resource Tool).

PBC DART provides residents with information and tools used to prepare for a disaster with the ability to report damage to their home or business in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.  Damage reports will help emergency managers get an immediate Countywide “picture” within hours of a disaster event to help prioritize response efforts.  The application is an additional outreach method to keep the public safe and informed before, during, and after disasters.

Features of the application include the following:

  • Evacuation Information
  • Evacuation Zone Identification
  • Shelter Information
  • Damage Reporting for Homes and Businesses
  • Emergency Operations Center Activation Level

PBC DART is available for immediate download at no charge from Apple’s iTunes Store and the Android Google Market. For additional information on emergency management programs visit
