Wildfire Survivor Management System

This is the development repository for two apps (Survivor Application and Survivor Dashboard) which together create the Wildfire Survivor Management System (WSMS).

Static (Development) Hosted App:

Origin Story

@AlenaNV, @cmatthey and I met each other at an IBM Call for Code Hackathon and submitted a Proof Of Concept after working with the Development Director from United Way (Northern California). He and his team were interested in moving forward so we did! @AlenaNV has created the Sketch files at this link from the requirements we have gathered since then. I've been working on getting the MVP together (React, Node, Firebase, Cypress).

Project Roadmap

  • Initial Kickoff + Gather Requirements
  • Initial Sketches (Sketch files)
  • Initial (Development) Survivor Application
  • Initial (Development) Survivor Dashboard
  • Initial (Production) Release for Survivor Application
  • Initial (Production) Release for Survivor Dashboard

Project Overview

The project is split into two apps: a Survivor Application and a Survivor Dashboard. Each user will have an account for their Survivor Application and each staff/admin will have an account for the Survivor Dashboard, which shows all users' Survivor Application data along with some internal admin-related data (financial assistance details, application status, etc.)
