ALAN website offers current information on logistics needs and more

September 05, 20191 minute read

The website of the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) is an up-to-date resource for many kinds of information flowing through and around a disaster such as Hurricane Dorian. One of the main services is to match needs to donated services, space and equipment, but there is more.

The website also provides links to state-by-state information such as evacuation zones and routes, storm surge maps, weather predictions, service outages, emergency shelter locations, and transportation waivers.

ALAN encourages people who want to help to check the website for current needs and to consider “pre-offering” expertise, transportation, warehousing or material handling support to hasten response time.
