-Upload Directory/Database

-Communicate Emergency Procedures in Advance

-Allow Community Members to text in tips/suspicious activity

-Communicate all threats (weather, crimes, etc) real time

-During an active threat, immediately send a message to everyone in the network so people do not accidentally enter a life threatening situation and/or can take precautions (like locking their doors/arming themselves).
