The ability to instantly receive local news information via smartphone app could mean the difference between life and death in a public emergency.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Emergency situations, natural and unnatural, have been at the forefront of the news for most of 2013. After emphasizing a need for a family emergency preparedness plan, YourDailySuccessTip.com CEO Dayna Steele is adding to that plan by highlighting the need for local information, especially while traveling.
“Today you should find a mobile app for your local news/talk radio station and add it to your phone,” begins Steele, a self-proclaimed news junkie. “If your local station doesn’t have an app, try I Heart Radio or TuneIn. But do it today and be prepared.”
While traveling for speaking engagements for several weeks straight in the months of April and May, Steele plugged the local news app into her rental car and listened while driving in order to stay in touch with home. Following the Oklahoma tornadoes, Steele decided to spotlight the importance of the local app on YourDailySuccessTip.com.
“The ability to instantly receive local news information via smartphone app could mean the difference between life and death in a public emergency,” says Brent Clanton, Business Editor of News92FM in Houston. “It will also help put your mind at ease while you’re away.”
Most apps are available for free but, Steele emphasizes, the time to do this is now. Just like any emergency plan, it may be too late if you wait until disaster strikes.
