Storm season is upon us…is your family prepared? One item to be sure and have on hand is a corded home telephone, since it does not require electricity and could be your backup method of communication during and after a storm. It’s important for you to know:
- Cordless phones require electricity and will not continue to work during a power outage.
- Cellular systems and towers are not required to provide backup power, so cell phones may not operate during a power outage either.
For safety’s sake, Alpine Communications urges you to always have at least one corded phone in your home. For more information about the importance of having a corded phone, visit the Alpine TEC Store in Elkader or call us at 245-4000.
