アメリカでは今週(2012年5月27日の週)は、「National Hurricane Preparedness Week」である。いよいよアメリカではハリケーンシーズンへの突入である。日本語では「全国ハリケーン対策週間」と訳すのであろう。





  1. 緊急以外の電話をしない。
  2. 電話は手短に。
  3. 緊急以外の用件はSMS(ショートメッセージ)で。
  4. 1つの通信手段で繋がらない場合は、別の手段を試してみて。
  5. リダイヤルするまで10秒待とう。
  6. 携帯電話の充電をしておこう。
  7. 緊急連絡先の番号をリストアップしておこう。
  8. 自動車に乗っている時は、止まっている時に電話をしよう。
  9. 家族でコミュニケーション方法を事前に決めておこう。
  10. 自宅の電話は、避難時に備えて携帯電話に転送しよう。
  11. 嵐が去った後、家が停電していたら、自動車で充電しよう。そしてラジオを聞こう。(但し自動車が安全かどうか確かめて)
  12. テレビやラジオをつけてニュースを確認しよう。





  1. Limit non-emergency phone calls. This will minimize network congestion, free up "space" on the network for emergency communications and conserve battery power if you are using a wireless phone;
  2. Keep all phone calls brief. If you need to use a phone, try to use it only to convey vital information to emergency personnel and/or family;
  3. For non-emergency calls, try text messaging, also known as short messaging service (SMS) when using your wireless phone. In many cases text messages will go through when your call may not. It will also help free up more "space" for emergency communications on the telephone network;
  4. If possible, try a variety of communications services if you are unsuccessful in getting through with one. For example, if you are unsuccessful in getting through on your wireless phone, try a messaging capability like text messaging or email. Alternatively, try a landline phone if one is available. This will help spread the communications demand over multiple networks and should reduce overall congestion;
  5. Wait 10 seconds before redialing a call. On many wireless handsets, to re-dial a number, you simply push "send" after you've ended a call to redial the previous number. If you do this too quickly, the data from the handset to the cell sites do not have enough time to clear before you've resent the same data. This contributes to a clogged network;
  6. Have charged batteries and car-charger adapters available for backup power for your wireless phone;
  7. Maintain a list of emergency phone numbers in your phone;
  8. If in your vehicle, try to place calls while your vehicle is stationary;
  9. Have a family communications plan in place. Designate someone out of the area as a central contact, and make certain all family members know who to contact if they become separated;
  10. If you have Call Forwarding on your home number, forward your home number to your wireless number in the event of an evacuation. That way you will get incoming calls from your landline phone;
  11. After the storm has passed, if you lose power in your home, try using your car to charge cell phones or listen to news alerts on the car radio. But be careful – don’t try to reach your car if it is not safe to do so, and remain vigilant about carbon monoxide emissions from your car if it is a closed space, such as a garage;
  12. Tune-in to broadcast and radio news for important news alerts.
