NASHVILLE (AP) - Tennesseans can download a new app for their iPhones and iPads called ReadyTN, a preparedness program developed by the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.

The app is available through the App Store or the iTunes store. The agency said in a news release that more than 15,000 users have downloaded the Android version of the app, which has been available since February.

ReadyTN will provide location-based information on severe weather, road conditions, open shelters and local government contacts. The app also provides preparedness tips for specific hazards and checklists for emergency kits.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said in a statement that citizens are relying increasingly on their mobile devices for relevant and timely information and the ReadyTN app delivers critical tips to Tennesseans so they can be prepared.
