[Infograph] Emergency Comm Devices Explained



By Tess Pennington – Ready Nutrition

Consider, for a moment, what our lives would be like without access to communication channels telling us what is going on? How vulnerable would we feel not getting our daily dose of local, and world news? For that matter, how would we get in touch with loved ones to let them know how we are?
