Please keep in mind that certain kinds of natural disasters will bring down cell phone towers, phone lines and electricity. Even if phone lines are not damaged, calling may still be difficult due to the lines being tied up. In a disaster, please limit your calls to the absolutely essential so emergency calls can get through. If you have text messaging, use it instead of calling as it uses much less bandwidth. Better still, make just one call to a pre-designated off-island contact person to let them know you are okay, and then stay off the phone unless absolutely necessary. Also, keep your cell phone charged. And if you have a landline, get an “old-fashioned” phone that plugs into the wall to use for emergencies. If electricity is out, cordless phones with a base that requires electricity will not work.
