As part of National Preparedness Month, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released new tips for consumers aimed at preparing them for major disasters when communications networks are more likely to be compromised or damaged.Nearly one month ago, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake and Hurricane Irene struck the East Coast.In the minutes and hours that followed, mobile networks experienced significant network congestion, temporarily making it harder for millions of people to reach loved ones and emergency services.

This tip sheet aims to help prepare Americans about how to communicate with each other, and loved ones, in the event of another disaster.
