High tides or overflowing rivers can pose great danger. Fortunately, you can stay safe during floods with these smartphone apps.
Climate change is beginning to be felt in genuine, practical terms. Rising sea levels are just one of the ways we can see this with our own bare eyes. We are also getting more rain than usual which, in turn, raises the risks of floods in many regions of the world. From Wales to India and beyond, it is essential to stay safe. So how can you do that? Start by staying informed at all times. Receiving timely alerts on your smartphone will allow you to plan your next step and keep yourself and your family out of harm's way.
Of course, weather warnings will form but one piece of the puzzle. Other safety measures will likely be required, especially if flooding gets severe and power is cut off for hours - or even days. After all, this is not just about yourself but also about those you care for the most. You will want to make sure that immediate family, friends, and relatives are all safe and sound. For this, you will need an old-fashioned system that works - even if internet connections and mobile reception are patchy. PTT (Push-To-Talk) is the way to go.
The goal is to avoid any trouble whatsoever. Unfortunately, that is not always possible. The thing about accidents is that they do sometimes occur. It's essential to be prepared - and know what you're doing. If you still haven't figured out the basics of first aid - now it's time to do it. Download the official First Aid app and make sure you thoroughly understand what ought to be done in case of an emergency. Tips on what to do - both at home and out in the open - could save someone's life.
