A new emergency service just became available via Digicel. Please pass this info on to anyone you've got on the ground:
- If inside Haiti: text your location to 4636 directly from your own phone It will upload directly to http://haiti.ushahidi.com/, which is being monitored by first responders. This will currently ONLY work on the Digicel network--it's not up for Voila yet. - If inside Haiti and registering someone else's phone number: send a text with REGISTER or REGISTRE and the loved ones' number and location, to 4636 - If overseas: text REGISTER or REGISTRE and the loved ones' local Haiti number, and location to +4673 749 4535 - Note: The SMS shortcode is dependent on local telecom infrastructure; if the infrastructure fails, the local SMS service will not work
