Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Organizing key information for personal disaster preparedness in an efficient and accessible format is critical to ensure practical utility. The authors examine the use of mind mapping technology to organize personal disaster preparedness information and explore the potential of mind mapping software as a tool to create individual and family preparedness resources. DESIGN: The general features of mind maps are considered and a sample family preparedness plan was created using TheBrain, a mind mapping software. RESULTS: Mind maps are a promising tool to organize personal preparedness plans with the ability to include significant amounts of varied information in a structure that emphasizes relationships between topics and enables collaborative sharing.
