Facebook’s Safety Check Now Includes Community Help Features

Community Help enables users to either offer or locate assistance such as food, shelter or transportation during times of crisis

Facebook introduced its Safety Check feature in October 2014 to enable users to let friends and family know they were safe during natural disasters, acts of terrorism or other crisis situations. Starting Wednesday, Safety Check can do even more.
