What should you do if you want to know your family is safe after a weather, terror, or other emergency event? Text first. Talk second. The Safe America Foundation has launched a “text first/talk second” campaign coinciding with the anniversary 9/11. Think about it. Texting “I M O K” takes less than 2 seconds and uses a fraction of the bandwidth of a call. In fact, 800 people can text “I M O K” in the bandwidth required for one phone call. If you need a primer on texting, see a teenager.
