COMMUNICATIONS

WHEN DISASTER STRIKES MANY OF THE WAYS WE ARE USED TO COMMUNICATING WITH PEOPLE DON'T WORK.   THIS INCLUDES LAND LINE PHONES, CELL PHONES, THE INTERNET, AND POSTAL MAIL.
THIS MEANS WE NEED TO BE PREPARED WITH ALTERNATE MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.  TWO OF THE WAYS THAT CAN WORK AS LONG AS YOU HAVE A POWER SOURCE IS CITIZEN BAND AND AMATEUR RADIO (HAM).  CB RADIOS DO NOT REQUIRE A LICENSE, BUT DO NOT HAVE THE RANGE OF HAM RADIOS WHICH DO REQUIRE A LICENSE.   BOTH RESOURCES NEED TO BE USED REGULARLY BEFORE A DISASTER SO YOU'LL BE  ADEQUATELY PREPARED IN AN EMERGENCY.
  AMATEUR RADIO  BETTER KNOWN AS HAM GIVES THE GREATEST RANGE AND FLEXIBILITY.
