Hurricane Tips On Saturday Show

Did you realize hurricane season has officially started? Our local TV stations have just done a horrible job of reminding us!

I'm going to open up the phone lines on my show this Saturday asking for your best tips and tricks for emergency preparedness. If you or your company has a product or service that can help people prep then bring it on.

I'll cover everything from cell phones (buy additional batteries and car-charger adapters, progamming contacts and important numbers), home computer back up advice, waterprooof protection for laptops and other gear and much more.

Get a head start and start dialing at 12 noon. 713-212-KPRC

UPDATE: Good stuff today, peeps. Thanks for keeping the phone lines busy with comments and tips about emergency preparedness. Let's hope we won't have to put these ideas into actual play. Some links to products and services we talked about on the show:

Affordable Scans - local company that scans entires collections of photos, film and docs
PC Pinpoint - remotely analyzes PC problems with 24/7 customer support
Plan Ahead Houston - links to local emergency resources
Batteries Plus - you can NEVER have enough batteries
BackUp Now - software to back up and restore PC
Fuel Finder - app from Verizon Wireless to find gas


  • One thing I learned from Rita: a flat-panel monitor is a lot easier tomove than an CRT with the same screen size.

  • I'll be listening to how to prepare and not get stuck in the traffic. Maybe it's the cities job to do a better job.

    I'll see how much you have learned by my teachings
