Life Saving Reasons to Get Good Cell Phone Signal
- 22 Apr, 2020
Why Signal Boosters Are Live-Saving Tools
Is my Landline Enough in an Emergency?
According to Stats SA, only 0.2% of South African households living in metropolitan areas exclusively used landlines, compared to 84.7% that exclusively used cellular phones. It's safe to say that most households rely exclusively on their cellular phones for communication.
Landlines might provide a base level of safety, but home telephones have their shortcomings. Firstly, very little households in our country still make use of landlines. Power lines go down, wires get cut, and we’re all at the mercy of whatever misfortune is causing us to call for help in the first place.
Emergency preparedness is just another reason why landlines are joining the ranks of satellite television on the downhill spiral to tech oblivion.
Will my cell phone keep me safe?
Cell phone users are free from the cords and possible problems of out dated landlines. As most have made the switch to full-time cell phones, the strength of cell signal is becoming more and more vital. The only thing getting in the way of your 911 call is a poor or non-existent signal. Things like weather, natural vegetation and trees, and building materials can block the radio frequency waves that carry your cell phone signal, but fortunately, there’s an easy fix for that - a cell phone signal booster.
Stay connected with a signal booster for emergencies
Cell phone signal boosters keep you connected when and where you need it most, whether it’s at home, the office, or even in your vehicle. So many masked maniacs could have been foiled in slasher films if they’d only had a signal booster, sure, but what about real life?
Storms, fires, intruders, injuries, or any array of emergencies can require the swift assistance of proper authorities — and the cell phone signal necessary to complete the call.
Protect yourself and your loved ones with a reliable cellular signal. There might be small children in your home, or older kids away at college. Perhaps it’s an aging parent or grandparent, or simply a close friend. Especially when you can’t be with them every day, you can be proactive and ensure that there is strong reliable cellular connectivity.
1. Emergency signal boosters for natural disasters or storms
Serious weather, hail storms or floods, and other natural disasters are scary enough — keeping a signal booster on hand will ensure that you never get cut off from the help you need.
2. Emergency signal boosters protect against intruders
Getting in touch with the police is priority number one in the event of a home invasion. Speed matters when every homeowner's worst nightmare comes true, and those precious moments can’t be wasted searching for a solid signal. In addition, home security and alarm systems frequently require cellular connectivity, so a signal booster might just be the extra step that truly keeps your home secure.
3. Emergency signal boosters for accidents or injury
From fires to slip-and-falls, accidents come in many shapes and forms. When injuries or illness strike, you can’t afford to waste time trying to find a signal. Once again, a quality cell phone signal booster helps to keep you connected to the life-saving emergency services you need, when you need them most.
4. Emergency signal boosters for car trouble and camping
Who hasn’t run out of fuel or had a flat tyre? Vehicles are susceptible to a laundry list of issues and accidents, and mobile signal boosters can ensure that you get the help you need — whether it’s from the AA or an ambulance.
Our selection of vehicle signal boosters ranges all the way from sedan to caravans, and everything in-between. Lost in the Karoo? Stuck in a hailstorm? Snakebite while camping? Every emergency deserves immediate attention, and a signal booster helps to connect you quickly to the service you need.
5. Preserve your battery life with an emergency cell signal booster
Battery life is just as important as signal strength in an emergency. A cell phone signal booster slows your battery from draining as it searches for a signal. Poor signals suck the life out of your battery as it works overtime to connect — a proper signal booster not only keeps you connected, but it preserves the battery life you have by skipping the search.
6. Emergency signal boosters are stress-busters
Stress is detrimental to your health, but it’s also inevitable. Lighten your daily load with the peace of mind that comes with preparedness. Simply knowing that you’re ready for the unexpected takes a huge weight off of your shoulders. Take the worry out of the every day, and if disaster does strike, your preparedness will help you to keep calm and make the best decisions for the situation.
7. Emergency Responders need emergency signal boosters, too
Civilians aren’t the only ones who stand to benefit from a signal booster - Emergency responders need to receive the call in the first place. Especially in large-scale emergencies, police officers, firefighters, ambulances, and other first responders need to stay in contact with dispatchers. Emergency responder signal boosters ensure that help is on the way after the call is made.
8. Strong cell phone signals save lives
While dropped signals are annoying when you’re streaming videos or texting friends, they can be life-threatening in an emergency. There are so many reasons to invest in a cell phone signal booster just for the many daily conveniences — but safety and security present a much more immediate need. Cell phone signal boosters take the stress out of the mobile experience, ensuring that you’re never left in the dark when your phone call really matters.
