Disaster Preparedness and Response is a pillar of operation for Habitat Texas
Our much-anticipated, new free social gaming application, Last House Standing™ (LHS), is now available for download on Apple & Android devices. And, as it is the abiding support of our partners that generates our program success, we are asking you to download, play, review, and challenge your friends to play as you share the app through your internal and social-networking channels.
The app uses fun to introduce the next generation of homebuyers, homebuilders, homeowners, and renters to one central point—that how and where you build is the most fundamental element of disaster survival for families and homes.
The project idea grew from research, including FEMA’s Preparedness in America report on public preparedness and perceptions that indicated that 58% of 18 to 34-year-olds surveyed failed to recognize disaster safety as a priority. Specifically, survey respondents expressed the need to know “where to begin” to be protected and resilient in the face of hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, and more.
LHS requires iOS 7.0 or later, and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and most Android devices. While the app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad 4 or later, it will operate on older models too.
Download and play today, and we will see you on the Master Builder Board!
