One Item People Must Add to a Hurricane Emergency Kit

This item is missing from every Hurricane Emergency Preparedness Kit we have seen listed online or in the newspapers, and it could save a life.

Every Hurricane Emergency Kit must have a Satellite Phone!

All Road Communications, , based in San Diego, California, wants to make sure that people have the ability to stay in touch when the power is out and the cell phone towers are down.

"It is amazing to us that Satellite Phones are not on every list of suggested items for Hurricane Kits" said All Road's Scott Lindsey. "The State of Florida announced a tax holiday on many items, which is a great thing, but leaving satellite phones off their list makes no sense. Floridians can get tax breaks on cell phone batteries, but during a major hurricane cell phone towers go down so cell phones are useless" he said.

Satellite phones do not need cell phone towers to work, they run directly off satellites, which are not affected by weather conditions on earth, so during severe weather satellite phones are usually the only viable form of communication.

"Satellite phone rental prices have come down a lot since last year, here at All Road we rent Globalstar satellite phones like the Qualcomm GSP-1600 for as little as $19.49 a week right now, but that sale ends this week and demand is very high so we recommend booking now to make sure you get your phone" said Lindsey.

"Satellite phone minutes are also coming down in price, for our Globalstar phones the standard rate is only $1.59 per minute. For Iridium users we rent the Motorola 9505A from just $34.99 per week with standard pay-as-you-go minutes at just $1.79. We also rent other vital accessories like solar panels and mag-mount antennas whcih make your sat phone work in the car."

All Road Communications rents and sells satellite phones, and high speed mobile satellite internet units and service. All Road is open for sales and support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

All Road offers same day delivery throughout the lower 48 states via air freight, Amtrak, Greyhound or personal deliveries.
