RESCUECOM'S Hurricane Technology Tips

While a hurricane can have a devastating effect, there are ways we can use technology to minimize the devastation. It is important to know what you can do to keep yourself online as well as protect and maintain the use of your tech devices in even the worst conditions. Here are some important technology tips to utilize when a hurricane is coming.

• Buy a large UPS 1500 Watt that is used for your computer, unplug all of the computers and screen, and only use it to charge your cell phones. This will get you through days of cell phone charging. You can buy one on Amazon for $165.00.

• Install skype on your phone and buy a small amount of skype credits. A good amount would be $10.00, which will go a long way and allow you to call both local and long distance numbers when all you have is WiFi.

• Install the weather.com app. It has real time updates and a map to track the storm.

• Have a large waterproof plastic bin and fill it with uncooked rice, which is handy in the event your technology gets wet. Put any phones, computers, or tablets in the bin filled with the dry rice immediately after they get wet.

• Raise all of your technology 6 feet off the ground so that in the event your house gets flooded, it will not cover your computers and other tech devices.

...When I say, I am truely expressed. David and his team are a blessing in disguise. I was just hired for a work at home postion. My compter had several, multiple virues. David stayed with me over the phone to fix, and resolve the issues. His personality and the ability to show me what not to install, was comforting. I'm greatly appreciative of RUSCUECOM. less

...When I called my compute was completely dead. Going away on Sunday and needed to have access to my computer to get emails out before I left. I talked with T and she was very pleasant and understanding. Take all my information and had tech David call me back. Davis was so awesome and worked with me to get to the point were he could take over my machine. I am so thankful for David he was patience, understand, working with me. He went above and beyond to ensure me that everything will be okay and he would work all night if he had to get my computer fixed. I worked as a supervisor, office manager for many years, I would have been delighted to have David on my team. Once again I am thankful I gave rescue Com I have never any problems with any of the techs. I really appreciate David approach to customer service. Once again he was AWESOME! less
