Citizen Preparedness Tip — Keep An Extra Mobile Phone Battery

May 2nd, 2008 · 4 Comments

This tip comes via Mitchell Moss. Moss, a highly respected urban policy expert oversees New York University’s Improving Robustness and Resiliency in Catastrophic Response Networks project which is part of the School’s Center for Catastrophe Preparedness and Response.

During his presentation at a homeland security seminar I recently attended, Moss recommended that everyone in the room – and all citizens — should have an extra mobile phone battery. It’s a great suggestion and I went out and got one from my BlackBerry.

To me, your cell phone or PDA is the most important preparedness tool an individual can have in the event of an emergency. So, having at least one extra charged battery makes a lot of sense, though I hadn’t thought of it until Professor Moss raised the idea.
