In today's society of terror caused by either humans, bacteria or environmental catastrophes, there is most likely an emergency call list in every other home across the United States. Households need to have government emergency, law enforcement and informational website addresses on hand also. Technology has changed the way we live our lives, not to a small degree, a large degree. We use technology to better ourselves, to entertain, to physically live. Therefore, technology should be the first thing we grab when we need help.
Sometimes it should be the telephone, but not always. The telephone doesn't guarantee you that the person picking up can help you, or that they'll even try. The internet can, in most respects. By getting what you need done in the fastest possible way, you benefit greatly by keeping seconds or minutes of your time.
