I have talked many times about how it is important to be prepared in case of an emergency be it a snow storm or a hurricane or any other natural disaster or a life threatening accident it is important to make sure that you have a way to contact someone for help. In the world now many people have cell phones but at the same time not everyone (including those like the elderly who really should have them for safety reasons) have them because of the cost associated with them. I know that when my youngest had a seizure was the scariest thing ever and I could not imagine not being able to call 911 in am emergency if I did not have a phone.
Right now if you live in one of the following states you could be eligible for a FREE cell phone with FREE minutes each month.
- West Virginia
This is a federally funded program and I think it is great for those who can not afford to have a cell phone or those who don’t need one for daily use but having one for the “just in case”. You must be eligible to enroll and can find out HERE if you are.
Find out if you are eligible HERE and if you know someone who might be eligible make sure you share this with them, you could be helping them be safe in an emergency situation.
(I am hoping they add more states to this program because I think it is a VERY helpful and needed program)
