In a crisis, you need to know how long the water, food and medicine must last. And there is a plan to give you reports. But that plan rests entirely on you having what it takes.
Both cyber attacks and natural disasters can knock out the electricity grid and with it our most common means of communication. And when the digital is knocked out, it can be good with a plan B.
Storm Gudrun and the forest fires
In January 2005, the storm Gudrun cut hundreds of thousands of households without electricity and for many, this meant that television and the internet were cut off for 1.5 months. Local P4 stations were crucial in reaching out with information on help to those in need.
SR and the emergency preparedness assignment
