Emergency Communications empowers your group to involve and educate individuals about simple steps one can take to become more prepared. Forty-six percent of individuals expect to rely a great deal on people in their neighborhood for assistance within the first 72 hours after a disaster.

In a serious emergency power is interrupted, landline telephones are often affected and even cell phones become unreliable due to central computer outage, damaged antennas and/or over usage by the populace. Time is of the essence and good communications within the neighborhood are likely to save lives and preserve property.

So what is the answer for emergency communications for neighborhood groups?

The answer for most Neighborhood Groups becomes two-way Family Radio Service . . .
a good option for Neighborhood Emergency Communications (inexpensive walkie-talkies).

The FRS (Family Radio Service) & GMRS (Ground Mobile Radio Service) radios typically have
22 separate channels. Each Neighborhood Group has two designated frequencies (primary and backup). Group members are equipped with a simple FRS radio because they only have the need to communicate within their Neighborhood with each other and their group leader usually over distances of less than a mile. The Group leader is equipped and responsible for communications with resources outside of the neighborhood.
