Utilizing your smart phone for an emergency

Did you know that our phones have become a crucial tool for emergency preparedness? Here are some helpful tips: 

  • Keep a picture of you and your family, including pets, in case you get separated in an emergency. 
  • Set up text or chat groups so that you can quickly communicate with friends and family in an emergency. 
  • Use a shared list-making app with your household to record items that you would want to "grab and go".
