Free Alert Systems to Help You Stay Safe In An Emergency
Being prepared in the event of an emergency is the best policy!
September 6, 2017

During and after a major storm, staying safe through an evacuation and then resuming day-to-day life safely usually requires a strategy, planning and often re-planning. There are so many moving parts and unknowns. Today we are lucky enough to be able to gain a tremendous amount of information at our fingertips. Technology has changed the face of emergency recovery procedures and communication. Assuming there is electric, or phone service available, recovery has become more manageable. Getting answers to the most pressing and critical questions can mean the difference between staying safe or at risk:

  • Are there trees down?
  • What is the curfew?
  • Do we have power? Is it restored yet?
  • Is our water safe? How do we ensure that?
  • Are roads cleared? Is there another route?
  • When will schools open again?

Automated Alerts – Updates – Notifications!

10 Steps to Safely Resuming Daily Life

Here are some great alert services offering information through multiple devices that relay status changes, such as “power is restored” or “evacuation order is lifted”. Here are some services that are easy to setup for future use:
