Do you and your loved ones have a plan in place for emergency situations such as floods, wildfires, hurricanes, or power outages? If not, you might want to call a family meeting and discuss how you can stay safe during emergency weather situations.
Here are some tips to help get prepared on National Preparathon Day, per www.ready.gov:
- Be Informed—Learn what different measures to take before, during and after an emergency.
- Make A Plan—Develop a plan that answers the following questions: How will my family get to safe locations for relevant emergencies? How will my family get in touch if a cell phone, Wi-Fi or landline doesn’t work? (Hint: NextRadio!)
- Build A Kit— A disaster supply kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency such as having back up food, water, and other supplies to last you for at least 72 hours.
- Download the NextRadio app—Since NextRadio uses your smartphone’s built-in FM receiver and not WiFi or Data, you don’t have to stress about being disconnected from help when you need it most. NextRadio app automatically sends notifications to your smartphone during emergency weather, AMBER alerts and Presidential messages.
Does your wireless carrier or phone manufacture still need to activate the FM chip? Let your voice be heard by heading to www.freeradioonmyphone.org and take action now!
