Crisis event support on Waze

A crisis event is an event that has had, or is expected to have, significant negative impact on a local area.

Waze provides partners with a number of tools to help you reach as many users as possible during a crisis, such as: 

  • Incident and road closure feed
  • iFrame to embed our Live Map on your site (including crisis centers)
  • Place emergency shelter/crisis center pins on the map (users can interact with pins: navigate, call, go to website, and search online)
  • Update gas station status (gas shortage, electricity/no electricity)
  • Update unusual traffic
  • Make real time changes to the map (provided by the Waze map editor community)
  • Support your organization by getting real time data from actual drivers

If you have other ideas or suggestions for how Waze can help reach local communities during a crisis, email waze-crisis@google.com.
