Design is much more than setting on a desk using Auto CAD to move chairs on an office interior plan. My design training gave me a three dimensional way of thinking and visualizing that helps me look at a challenge and see the best way to overcome that challenge by using all the possible or impossible resolutions.
Goverments normaly have access to phones, computers, etc, however the person informing the goverment may not have any tech devices to be able to reach the goverment. People tend to forget the “hard to access” part that is why I suggested the above.
The question came up that - what other information could they share beyond "the above" if they are in trouble? It really depends on the area, Pigeon post been used before, if they can read and write, Smoke signals, light, etc, it really depends on geographically where they are located, they have access to te technology, If they are literate or not, etc. My big concern is people who have disability, how they can receive the massage and get help. Children who might not have access to any of that being suggested so far.
