Communication - Audio and Video

To be able to communicate using audio or video devices during an emergency can save lives. Below are some ideas on audio and video communications devices.

Phone - During an emergency, your land line and your mobile phones may or may not work.

A land line phone has its own supply of electricity so it may still be working even though electricity to your home may be down.

Mobile phones rely on the phone being charged, within range of a tower and the tower working. If any of these fail, your mobile phone will not work. However, if your mobile phone is working it can be of great value in surviving an emergency. Keep it handy and conserve its battery.

If you have Internet Phone it will not work if your computer is not turned on. For desktop computers, that means the electricity to the home must be working. For laptops even though the electricity to the home may be off, the laptop itself has its own battery and it may be able to run. However, if that laptop relies on any routers or switches in your home to provide Internet service they will probably not work if the power is off.

Be sure to have a hard copy list of all important contact info for others just in case you cannot retrieve them from your computer, mobile phone or PDA.
