In This Episode:In today's world, it has become very easy to be dependent upon modern technology devices such as cell phones, the internet, social media, and television. For those of us in the prepper community, we must understand that a time may come when these modern conveniences may no longer be a viable resource for communication. How will you be able to communicate when your cell phone has no service or the battery is down? Cell phones require working service or the internet and a charged battery to operate. During an emergency, you may need to rely on alternate forms of communication such as amateur radio, family band radios, satellite phones, landlines, or old-fashioned hand-written notes.In this episode, we will explore the alternative forms of communication that we have available in the event of an emergency! Key Topics:Social MediaFacebook Google crisis response    Mobile AppsLife 360FEMA appCell PhoneLandline telephone Satellite PhonesTwo-Way radioCitizens Band Radio (CB Radio)Amateur Radio (HAM Radio)Old-fashioned handwritten notesConclusion Resources:The Family Emergency Communications PlanFinancial Disaster PlanningThe Basic Emergency Supply KitFamily Emergency Communications Forms PDFFinancial Disaster Plan Forms PDFBasic Emergency Supplies kit Checklist PDFSocial Media;FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterestWebpage; https://www.typicalprepping.comSubscribe to my email list; Click HereEmail me with your suggestions, comments, or questions; keith@typicalprepping.comSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/typicalprepping)

In This Episode:In this episode, we’ll talk about how you can prepare yourself and your family should you encounter a wildfire where you live or while traveling.  Each year an average of over 60,000 wildfires occur in the United States burning millions of acres of forest and wildlands. The two primary ignition sources are lightning strikes which make up 10% of wildfire causes and 90% are attributed to humans. A wildfire is classified as human-caused and can begin via “debris burning, campfires, arson, discarded smoking products, sparks from equipment in operation, arced power lines, and other means” according to the National Interagency Fire Center. On average wildfires are responsible for the destruction of nearly 70 million acres of wildlands per year in the United States and cause an average of 339,000 deaths per year worldwide.Key Topics:IntroductionMake a planPrepare your homeWhen a wildfire is in your areaEvacuationReturning home after a wildfireWildfire safety while travelingConclusion    Resources:The Family Emergency Communications PlanFinancial Disaster PlanningThe Basic Emergency Supply KitFamily Emergency Communications Forms PDFFinancial Disaster Plan Forms PDFBasic Emergency Supplies kit Checklist PDFSocial Media; FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterestWebpage; https://www.typicalprepping.comSubscribe to my email list; Click HereEmail me with your suggestions, comments, or questions; keith@typicalprepping.comSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/typicalprepping)
