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.
