Emergency Assistance - Be Prepared During Severe Weather Or Other Emergencies
Edited by ATTDmitriyCM on Aug 19, 2013 at 12:29:59 PM

Please visit this link for more information about emergency preparedness and how AT&T can help you during emergency situations: AT&T Emergency Assistance

 

Here are a couple quick tips!

 

Have a family communications plan in place. Designate someone out of the area as a central contact, and make certain that all family members know whom to contact if they become separated. Most important, practice your emergency plan in advance.

 

Program all of your emergency contact numbers and e-mail addresses into your mobile phone. Numbers should include the police department, fire station and hospital, as well as your family members.

 

Camera phones provide assistance. If you have a camera phone, take, store and send photos — even video clips — of damaged property to your insurance company from your device.

 

Try text messaging. During an emergency situation, text messages may go through more quickly than voice calls because they require fewer network resources. All of AT&T’s wireless devices are text messaging capable. Depending on your text or data plan, additional charges may apply.
