Now that we’re in the midst of hurricane season, Meaghan, George and Leslie discuss what you need to know to make a plan to prepare for dealing with bad weather, and other forms of natural, and man-made disasters. What should be in your packing list? What kind of things should you consider when making your plan?
The team also discussed apps and other resources for getting real-time information during severe weather and other disasters. The American Radio Relay League provides information for finding amateur radio operators, local HAM clubs, and becoming a licensed operator. 5-0 Radiois an app that gives listeners access to local police and fire scanners and HAM Radio repeaters. Downloading the app is free, but there is an option to upgrade for $5.00. The U. S. Federal Emergency Management Administration, FEMA has a wealth of resources on their website which can also be access through their iPhone and android. And finally, the American Red Cross also has apps for iPhone and android for emergencies. It includes links to their entire suite of emergency weather apps and first aid for people and pets.
