Quite a few media outlets helped spread CrowdSource Rescue as a "go-to" resource.

We appeared on 3 cable TV shows and in approximately 128 news articles throughout the storm. This was particularily useful while Florence approached, as it helped our civilian rescuers numbers swell. The more eyeballs, the more rescuers, the more people saved.

Our web platform was viewed a staggering 2,500,000 times. We received 1,456 requests for rescues and were able to close 97% of them within 48 hours thanks to heroic civilian rescuers and volunteer dispatchers.
