-Cross brigade ​work using open source tools and code responding ​to hurricane evacuations, shelter ​tracking ​and post landfall supply ​distribution.+Code for America ​brigade ​members across the US volunteer during natural disasters to provide up-to-date ​and accurate information on shelters and food and water distribution points in the affected areas. 
 + 
 +Although we’ve built technology ​to help in this effortwe firmly believe that during a response, the focus should not be on the tech, it should be on the people impacted by the disaster. To that end, we’re proud to participate with the FEMA National Response Coordination Center’s Crowdsourcing Unit and partner with Red Cross and CEDR Digital Corps to deliver the best information we can get as quickly and effectively as possible to those who need it most. We do that through both automated and human processes:​ 
 +Automated tools import data from other systems about shelters and distribution points, index and format that data, and present it in a variety of useful formats for our partners and for individuals in need. 
 +Volunteers call shelter and distribution ​point sites to ensure data stays up-to-date in our systems and participate in FEMA Crowdsourcing Coordination Calls during the response. 
 +Our projects are all managed in GitHub and contain components using Ruby, Jekyll, HTML/CSS, Node and Javascript. We also have needs in user experience and user interface design.
