During the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, half of the families in the area devastated were separated for months because they were not able to contact each other. Some were without cars. Others were without cell phones. Then some children were lost in the disaster due to the inability to contact family. Little ones were found without a parent or found with a deceased parent. For months, no one knew who some of the children belonged to. Parents had no idea if their child was alive or dead. Make sure if a disaster occurs, your child has a cell phone. Even if they cannot provide some pertinent details, the cell phone will have numbers in it that can be called when necessary.
Years ago the story was told of a bus falling from a cliff in a remote area of the world. The bus was not found for days because there was no way to contact anyone.

Had the children or even one child had a cell phone, the fear could have been diminished, the time they were lost andd even possibly the life of the driver could have been saved.
A cell phone can be a problem when your child has not been guided on the use, yet, it can be a lifesaver when the unthinkable occurs.
