Being without phone service is risky during times of elevated concern.
Consider the following ideas:
1. Consider relocating to a family or friend’s home until your service is restored.
2. Have one or more neighborhood call buddies that will knock on your door if they don’t get through. These should be close neighbors. Tell them your phone service is out when it happens so they are aware of it before a possible emergency.
3. Have your land line and cell service on different carriers.
