DescriptionThe purpose of this project is to save human life from disaster. Many disasters can not be expected, but there are "Creeping Crisis" that can not be prevented though it is predictable. One of them is heat stroke. Due to global warming, 70,000 people died in Europe in 2003. In 2015, 5,000 people died in India and Pakistan, and 10,000 people died in Japan over the past 15 years. Our application "Creeping Crisis" is available on website and mobile.The biggest feature is to show the countdown timer until the most dangerous (the hottest) time of the day to inform the user of the crisis. When users go up to the temperature, "Creeping Crisis" will warn users how many deaths have occurred in the same temperature in the past. It will also display effective tips to avoid death. This tool can also be used for crises other than heat stroke. In the version for the newsroom, tool can show the count down timer for the predictable dangers which is quietly approaching, such as the spread of infection of diseases, approach of typhoon, let journalists know the necessity of coverage.
