The following link and our tips will help your family connected in case of an emergency:
• Set clear guidelines for checking in with parents or kids in the event of an emergency when family members are separated. Make sure everyone has an updated phone list in their electronic directory and create a paper back up in case electronic delivery fails. A wallet sized card with emergency numbers is very handy for each family member and near phones at home.
• Teach older relatives and grandparents how to text — even when phone service is interrupted texts can remain a communications tool.
