Digital Preparedness Kit

Digital preparedness is an important way to stay informed and connected before, during and after an emergency.

Here are some tips:

  • Tell your friends & family you are OK via text, Email, Twitter, Facebookand other social media. Avoid calling by phone.
  • Make sure your mobile phone has an electric charger, inverter or solar charger.
  • Know how to use your phone to communicate; for example, using WiFi versus a carrier’s network has differences; texting takes less bandwidth than phone calls.
  • Charge your digital cameraor buy batteries for your film camera if you need to document storm damage afterwards.
  • Save important phone numbers to your phone.

    If there are high winds in the area that level trees adjacent to my property from Fairfax County parklands (which occurs at my property line) will the county remove the trees and repair any damage to my fence?
