Do you and your community know how you would communicate if mobile phones or internet services aren’t working in a natural disaster?
Mobile and internet services keep us connected but they may not be available in a natural disaster.
It is important to have backup options.
The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Artshas developed a supporter kit to help get the message out about being prepared for a telecommunications outage during a natural disaster. They would love your help to raise community awareness about this important topic.
The kit contains a range of materials such as videos, flyers, social tiles, and posters with information on the simple steps your community can take to prepare.
These materials are available to download in English and 10 other languages from the kit at the link below.
