Our name was originally based on an acronym of what's required for a family to manage the four stages of an emergency. So ePACT = emergencies: Prepare, Act, Connect and Thrive. However, when families first started to use us, they reported that they felt they were making an "electronic pact" to support one another, given the connections they made to organizations, friends and relatives via their ePACT account. So we were so delighted that families felt ePACT was helping them build their own emergency support networks, that we removed the original acronym from our logo and became "your emergency network".
