Beacon originated at the University of South Carolina by a team of students and faculty looking to find a way to ensure that other communities facing disasters could more efficiently handle crises and move towards recovery. They interviewed and worked with disaster management agencies in the aftermath of the flood to identify what could be done to help other communities in need.  

As the system enters full development, the team is looking for developers and designers to join. For interested applications, please fill out the short form below, and a member of the Beacon team will get back to you shortly.

Beacon is proud to work with UofSCRelief to provide support, as part of the University of South Carolina's continued commitment to working towards a stronger Columbia. UofSCRelief and Beacon are the proud recipients of the Clay Grant, which provides funding for leadership opportunities on college campuses, provided by the Chi Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa.
