It’s a good idea to have a meeting place in case of an emergency and you get split up from your loved ones. Safety Maps, a straightforward application, helps you tell others the safety location. Simply mark your spot, and then share. You can make it public or only let the people you select see the map. Additionally, you get a PDF version via email for printing.
If anything, some of the public maps on the homepage are amusing, so it’s worth a look.

Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t see the utility of this. Sure, it’s a good idea to agree on a pre-arranged meeting place in case of disaster, but don’t disasters by their very nature make it difficult to get around? I mean, if an earthquake hits and tears up the roads, how are you going to get to your meeting place?
