4Bells
Deploy help after a disaster
THE PROBLEM
After a disaster strikes,
communities need to
quickly deploy people to
do urgent tasks.
Coordination in a time of
stress can be difficult, time-
consuming and is often
ineffective.
How can we quickly get
people with the right skills
and preparation to the
right places?
OUR SOLUTION
4Bells is a
mobile solution
that allows you
to deploy known
people to do
urgent time-
sensitive tasks.

You can use
4Bells to create
a group or sign
up as a
volunteer.
A volunteer
creates a profile
and associates
themselves with
a group.
When an task is
required, the
volunteer
receives enough
details to be
able to claim it.
THE IMPACT
More quickly
complete time-
sensitive tasks.
Better utilization of
trained and skilled
volunteers.
Improved capacity for
neighborhoods to self-
organize in times of stress.
