Our Phones Are Out, Now What?
In a regional emergency such as an earthquake, our communications systems—cell phones, land lines, and Internet— likely will fail.
FRS (Family Radio Service) radios, which are small, portable hand-held devices that function similar to walkie-talkies, work well for short range communication. They are an important part of your family’s disaster preparedness kit. Anyone who uses a mobile phone can, with a little training and practice (and fresh batteries), become a good FRS radio communicator. Learn how to use your FRS radio and practice your skills in a simulated emergency drill.
