Reliable information during a disaster or escalating crisis is paramount to survival. People need to know the scope of the disaster. They need information.
Depending on the disaster, the communication systems we normally rely upon may become unusable. Home phones become overloaded or unusable in many disaster scenarios. Hurricanes and tornadoes (and other disasters) could cause power failures and your methods for gathering information or communicating will be ‘dark’.
All modern communication devices require a power source. Anything here in America that ‘plugs in’ to the wall is dependent upon a steady flow of 120-volts of AC (Alternating Current). The situation is the same throughout the world, except the voltage varies in other countries.
