Texting O K

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.

    Great idea! I couldn’t agree with you more. In addition to “I M OK” you should already have a family plan on where to meet in the event of an emergency. In just 2 more seconds you could text “C U at Bobs”

    In the case you have stated I totally agree with you. It is the texting at an inappropriate time that I do not care for. Some people just do not use common sense when it comes to cell phone use.

    I couldn’t agree more! Texting is a great way to stay connected without uttering a sound. I am amazed at how many people that have cell phones do not have texing enabled (my husband included). Mags @ Pet Sitter
