NEW BROCKTON, Ala. (WDHN)—The Coffee County EMA held an informational session today on new technology which speeds the process
of sending pictures of damage following a “bad storm” or some “other” natural or manmade disaster.

Deputy Coffee County EMA Director, Grant Lyons, told responders that the new “Orion app” can be used
to document damage from a significant event, such as a tornado.

The pictures of the damage sent to the app will help the local ema provide a quick assessment to the
Alabama EMA.

And by going through this process, can speed up FEMA’s response to individuals and businesses.
