Spring is upon us and is a notorious time for severe weather.  U.S. Cellular recommends using free apps to keep you safe and updated, including The Weather Channel, WeatherBug, MyRadar Weather Radar, and AccuWeather, which are available on iTunes and Google Play.  During severe weather smartphones not only give you quick access to a host of apps, but will keep you connected to websites and emergency information too.  U.S. Cellular also recommends keeping your phone charged at all times, having a charger located in your vehicle, as well as having “ICE” (In Case of Emergency) contacts for your phone.  Simply program “ICE” in front of a person’s name or title, such as “ICE Mom” or “ICE Dave,” to help first responders quickly contact these important people. Additionally, if phone service is impacted by a high volume of calls during a storm, try sending a text message.  Text messages take up less bandwidth on a network than calls and may work when phone service is intermittent.
