DISASTERS HAPPEN ANYTIME, ANYWHERE
Disasters can happen anywhere, and to anyone, which is why it is so important to be prepared at all times. The ability to communicate is absolutely crucial in an emergency. While people remember physical essentials like food, water and shelter during disasters, communications are often overlooked as an emergency resource.
ANTICIPATE RISKS IN YOUR AREA
Do you live in:
- Coastal areas that may get hit by hurricanes?
- Regions where wildfires may spread quickly?
- Places with high tornado activity?
Whether you live in disaster-prone areas or not, there is always a chance for the unexpected to happen. Be responsible. Be informed. Plan ahead. Download this emergency kit with a step-by-step guide for Iridium satellite communications and some tips on how to prepare for an emergency.
COMMUNICATE AND BOUNCE BACK
In a disaster, there is a risk that telephone lines may fail quickly – and those that don’t can be overloaded with users attempting to place calls. Satellite communications may become the only alternative as your ‘cellular tower in the sky’. Iridium provides satellite connectivity with its network of 66 Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites that brings reliable service to anyone throughout the world. Satellite connectivity is a critical emergency resource and backup communications source that allows you, your family, and colleagues to stay safe, aware and connected during a crisis.
