Tips for Communicating Before, During, and After Disasters
The FCC and FEMA have released the following tips for communicating during a disaster.
When disaster strikes, you want to be able to communicate by both
receiving and distributing information to others. You may need to call
9-1-1 for assistance, locate friends or family, or let loved ones know
that you are okay. During disasters, communications networks could be
damaged, lose power, or become congested. This fact sheet provides two
important sets of tips. The first will help you prepare your home and
mobile devices for a disaster. The second may help you communicate more
effectively during and immediately after a disaster.
