Hurricane Harvey has already brought so much devastation to Texas and continues to cause havoc in surrounding areas. In times of natural disaster such as this, local radio is there to provide critical emergency information to its residents, and Hurricane Harvey has been no exception.
According to Radio World, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai issued the following statement Monday afternoon:
“The worst of tragedies brings out the best in people. In Harvey’s wake, first responders and everyday citizens have heroically stepped up to the plate to help their fellow Americans. Broadcasters and other news outlets have also played a critical role in conveying emergency information, and in some cases, even coordinating live, on-air rescues. Everyone who is pitching in deserves our gratitude and support. We’re all in this together.”
NextRadio App Available for Affected Residents
One of the main reasons the NextRadio app exists is to be there for our listeners during times of emergency via the enabled FM Chip in supported Android devices. When landlines, WI-FI or cell service is down, the NextRadio app is still available to provide emergency alerts and information through local radio.
We know that affected citizens have been able to use the NextRadio app to hear the critical information needed.
