Radio: Always on. Always there.
Whether it's keeping up with the latest music, getting the play-by-play of the baseball game or hearing updates on an approaching storm, nearly 243 million Americans rely on their local radio to keep them connected each day.
During an emergency, the ability to stay connected to the information that will keep you safe is imperative. Time and time again, local radio has proven to be one of the most dependable ways to stay informed in times of emergency.
Because a mobile phone with a built-in radio doesn't depend on a wireless or mobile connection, even when phone networks are clogged, radio still works.
During emergencies, power outages and severe weather, mobile phone signals can jam, while radio's over-the-air signal keeps listeners in touch and informed. This was especially evident during September 11 and during Hurricane Katrina. Read one radio station's account of how they helped listeners during the tragic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
When it comes to staying connected to the news and information that will keep you safe, you know you can rely on your local radio station. And having a phone that includes a built-in radio can keep you safe on the go.
But don't just take our word for it, even the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends consumers rely on radio. Watch below!
