Don’t Wait. Stay Safe. Be Prepared.
Communication Equipment Could Save Your Life!
Every year, we are contacted by families and businesses who have experienced a disaster or emergency and found themselves unprepared, out of communication, and vulnerable. We hope to educate people about the importance of being prepared and how CB Radios and other communication equipment can literally be a life saver.
As we saw with Puerto Rico in 2017, when hit by Hurricane Maria, communication infrastructure had been destroyed and people across the island were stranded without means of communicating with emergency services. Having your own communication system, such as a CB system, that’s independent of infrastructure like telephone lines, cell towers, broadcast radio, and TV, is critical during such an event.
Common Misconception: “If a disaster strikes, I can just use my cell phone to contact emergency services and my loved ones. I don’t need any other communication option.”
Truth: If communication towers and infrastructure are damaged or destroyed, your cellphone will likely not be able to connect with emergency services and/or your loved ones. CB radio systems don’t rely on towers or other infrastructure to communicate with others.
CB radio systems can provide essential communication between families and Emergency Responders.
Another reason why CB radio systems are so essential during a disaster is because Channel 9 is scanned by police and other emergency services to receive emergency communications regarding accidents, medical issues, and other emergencies from citizens like yourself. Many CB radios also include NOAA weather so that you can get important and critical weather updates and information. Read more in our Help Center!
There is an article in our Help Center that talks about different types of disasters and survival communication.
To make things a bit easier for you, we have some product recommendations listed in our Help Center – we selected products that are easy to set up and install so that you can communicate quickly in an emergency situation. We have also included some other useful communication products such as Two-Way Radios, Police Scanners, VHF Marine Radios, & Weather/Hazard Radios.
