0242 - Use Holiday Cards to Update Your Contacts

/
Lets face it. When you NEED to get a hold of someone, you NEED to get a hold of someone. The situation might be as simple as a flat tire or a dead car battery, or as serious as a sick family member or a missing child. In times of need, those individuals who have resources are more likely to influence their outcome. Resources come in many shapes and sizes. In a violent encounter we may draw on our training resources, our CCW, or our unarmed combative skills, but in all of the examples I gave above, car problems or a sick or missing family member communication might be vital to resolving the situation. With our modern communication devices, there is no reason that you should not have all of the information you need right at your fingertips. A mechanic or tow truck, no problem. These resources can make dealing with automotive challenges a breeze. Although dealing with a sick or missing family member is typically a much more severe issue, again communication can help. Having poison control, the family doctor and emergency resources at your finger tips can mean the difference between life and death. When your teenager isn't where they are supposed to be, having their school number, work number and all of their friends numbers ready to use could make the difference between a sigh of relief and a long night of worrying or worse!

0238 - Using your Smart Phone to Lead a Safer Life

/
Three years ago I would not have been able to imagine a world without cell phones. More than any other thing invented in recent times they have made our lives more efficient. The ability to communicate on a whim with virtually anyone allows our lives to be more flexible and spontaneous. This past holiday I chuckled when my dad busted out his circa 2004 flip phone. The reason I laughed is because it isn't about the phone any more. They are all in one do it all gadgets that have become essential in our lives. Yes, we could survive without smartphones, but for now we don't need to, so why not use them to help us when the chips are down!

0222 - Using 911 Efficiently

/
When we pick up the phone to dial 911 we most likely need help and we probably need it 3 minutes ago. The last thing we want to do is have the response to take any longer than it already is going to. In some situations due to mechanical difficulties or a lack of preparation, the call never gets through. Much of that is in our control.

0188 - Interview With EComm Expert Jack Sabo

/
Today we will talk with an Emergency Communications expert about three modes of communication we can prepare now to use in case of the failure of traditional forms of communications.

0166 - Twitter and Facebook Communication

/
In any emergency situation communication can be an important key to staying safe. Just like any other important system, I feel that having redundant systems of communication is important. We need to consider the reliability of low tech solutions, like pencil and paper and the power of high tech solutions, such as cellphones and internet and of course, don't forget about all the options in between. Today we are going to take a look at the top end of the scale. Communication through social media networks. I realize that this might not be for everyone, but I do think everyone should consider the advantages of these new and still developing areas of communication. ...

0163 - Enter ICE In Your Phone

/
In an emergency situation communication is key. There are however situations where we may depend on others to do the communicating for us. One of those times is if we are injured or incapacitated in some way and are unable to communicate ourselves. In that situation many people would love to help out, if they only knew how. That is where ICE comes in!
