After a major disaster, most of our normal methods of communication will be interrupted. Telephones will be out, the mail will not be delivered (you may not have a home to deliver it to), or you may be isolated at work and unable to travel to your family. Immediately after an earthquake, your phones will probably not work. This is because of damages to switching centers, local phone lines, and trunk lines. It could be that power to operate the phones systems itself is unavailable.
Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so plan how you will contact one another and review what you will do in different situations.
