When Not In Use…

Presented by:

Not in the boxes l.jpg

  • Satellite Phone

    • Limited windows of service and too many restrictions due to the satellite orbits.

  • Police Radio (or Scanner)

    • Most of your average users wouldn’t understand the majority of the radio traffic.

  • Generator

    • If there is no power at the site, it doesn’t make sense to use that site as an EOC. Storage and fuel also are an issue.

  • MacBooks Are Optional

    • We chose to include MacBooks as an alternative Operating System in the event of a malicious software attack.
