Severe weather can hit anywhere in the United States with little or no warning. From ice storms in the Northwest and Midwest tornadoes, to fires in the deep South and hurricanes in the Southeast, residents must stay on high alert and be prepared for potential weather emergencies.
According to a recent Harris Interactive poll, only 58 percent of people surveyed said they are prepared for a long-term power outage or a disaster such as a hurricane, earthquake, flood, wild land fire or terrorist attack by having the necessary supplies. In light of this information, EMBARQ (NYSE:EQ) has committed to helping consumers and businesses prepare their communication services to ensure they remain connected during severe weather and disasters.

Survey Finds Majority of Families Do Not Have Emergency Communications Plan
While 58 percent of moms feel their families are prepared for a severe weather emergency, only 30 percent have created and discussed an emergency communications plan, according to a recent survey by the Home Safety Council.
That is a cause for concern given that many experts say a detailed communications plan plays one of the biggest roles in helping families stay connected to each other and emergency contacts during a natural disaster, such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and wildfires. With the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasting a 65 percent chance for an above average storm season this year, there is even more reason for families to create and discuss emergency plans.
