When disaster strikes, stay open longer or reopen faster.
Use this FREE app to share grocery store status/needs

FMI - The Food Industry Association is your voice in an emergency. Floods, wildfires, and severe storms may threaten your business. To stay open longer or reopen faster, you will likely need help from multiple government agencies. Local, state and federal agencies rely on FMI to get updates on food availability in disaster impacted areas. They need to know the situation during and after a disaster strikes. Which stores are open, which are closed? And where are they? 

Sign up today to use SABER Mobile™, the new FREE situational awareness application brought to you by FMI and SpotOnResponse, Inc. With SABER Mobile, companies slash the time it takes to share each closure and needs update from minutes or hours to seconds.

FREE MOBILE APP FROM FMI GIVES STORE OWNERS OR MANAGERS CONTROL OVER THEIR STATUS REPORTING TO HQ & AGENCIES

Situational awareness at your fingertips! SABER Mobile makes it easy for individual grocery owner/operators to update everyday operational status and store managers of larger chains to keep everyone informed. SABER Mobile continually displays data for each business location in the nationwide SABER platform. During a crisis, government agencies can access all of that data 24x7 to help them prioritize and expedite response/recovery operations.

With SABER Mobile, you can quickly and easily:

  • Add your own business locations, which then appear on SABER Map, interactive USGS mapping with satellite and street views

  • Report closure status and business needs from each location to your
    company's operations center as well as SABER

  • Monitor developing hazards on SABER Map -- including NWS weather
    warnings, fire detection, earthquake warnings -- plus traffic incidents

  • Watch on SABER Map to see what other businesses in your area are doing during an emergency, which ones are closing and what they need, so you can compare to your situation and potentially support each other

  • Receive emergency notifications from government agencies via SABER

AND IF YOU HAVE MANY BUSINESS LOCATIONS, SABER HELPS YOU MANAGE STATUS & NEEDS WITH EASY SPREADSHEET UPLOADS

SABER's spreadsheet upload is a simple way for your operations center to maintain the status/needs of all stores centrally. They become the single source to vet and share status with government agencies. Spreadsheet upload is only intended to share situational awareness during an event while the SABER Mobile app helps keep you operational all year.  Learn more about SPREADSHEET UPLOADS >
