Get Tech Ready!
With floods, a hurricane and an earthquake in recent weeks, are you “tech ready” for the next incident that will affect our area? Digital preparedness is an important way to stay informed and connected before, during and after an emergency.
Tell your friends & family you are OK via text, email, Twitter, Facebook and other social media. Learn how to send updates via text and internet from your mobile phone to your contacts and social channels in case voice communications are not available. Text messages and the internet often have the ability to work in the event of a phone service disruption. Avoid calling by phone.
