JANUARY: Communication Outage

During a disaster, cellular networks may be overloaded or may fail. Your phone may be lost, damaged, or out of battery. You may not be able to access the internet. How will you exchange information with loved ones and receive emergency information and alerts from authorities?

Take Action

Tip

Try texting instead of calling during a mass emergency. When a network's voice channels are too overloaded to handle additional calls, a text message or SMS might still make it through.
