DENVER (October 11, 2018) – As hurricane season ramps up and Hurricane Michael continues to wreak havoc on the Florida panhandle and the Southeast U.S., it is a good time to keep in mind some tips to stay connected when gearing up for potential disaster. If the worst happens, a few simple tips that have gone by the wayside with our reliance on our cellphones, can make the difference in keeping you in contact with your family.
But, it’s not just for natural disasters. Staying connected in any perilous situation – a car accident, getting lost, etc. – can be a lifesaver.
Tips For Staying Connected
1. Memorize a few of the most important phone numbers in your phone. If you damage, lose your phone, or suffer widespread power outages and can’t charge your devices, you will still have those crucial phone numbers when you get access to a landline or a borrowed phone.
2. Write down and keep in your wallet or purse your family's contact information. You can almost always find a phone or borrow one if yours is lost or damaged. This is an especially good tip to keep in mind for newly mobile teens.
3. Regularly back up your contacts to the Cloud so that you can access your data from another locale at another time (and you are not dependent on your phone alone).
If your cellphone, laptop or key fob get wet, now there is an easy and affordable service to restore your device and data.
