Communicating with family, friends, and receiving information during emergencies is critical.  Make sure to have these items.

Whatever the situation, means of communication can be paramount. Whether it be communicating with family, getting information on weather situations, or getting help, communication will make the difference to more quickly resolve problems.

If a disaster occurs, don’t expect to whip out your cell phone and make a call. Cell phones and regular phones will either be lost or jammed.

During inclement weather, satellite television will go out just when you need information the most.

It is vital that every household have a weather radio with a good battery. Weather radios provide weather information to your selected area and will set off an alarm when hazards are possible in your area.

Two way radios are good to stay in contact with someone else.
