Disaster Recovery Log
The Disaster Recovery Log (DRL) app will help you record and recover from damage caused by flooding or other disasters. It is available free through the Android market (download now).
DRL uses the smartphone’s camera feature to capture photos to illustrate the flood damage. Users can key in descriptions of damaged items or use their smartphone’s voice recorder to record an audio description of the damage. These details and photos are essential for possible insurance and/or government reimbursement.
Each damaged item is entered as a "Detail" organized under a "Disaster." You start by adding a "Disaster." Then you add "Details" to that "Disaster" to document your losses.
You can enter text, add photos using your camera or gallery, and add audio using your sound recorder of choosing from saved audio files.
UPDATE ALERT: The latest update (released 9/6/2011) to DRL allows you to export all the text, images and audio you capture with the app. DRL creates a compressed ZIP file that contains a CSV file (compatible with Microsoft Excel) of all disasters and details you entered along with any image or audio files you saved with the app.
DRL also provides NDSU Extension Service information on how to clean or deal with flood-damaged appliances and electronics; carpets and floors; clothing and fabrics; food; furniture; gardens and landscapes; home structures; household items; mold; papers, books and photos; and water.
