Liberty also offers some tips to help customers stay connected and be prepared for an emergency.

 On the go:

  • Extend a mobile phone’s battery charge: Put the phone in power-saving mode, turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, delete unused apps, or place the phone in airplane mode.
  • Have several ways to charge the mobile phone: Keep a charger in the car and an external power bank in case of a power outage.
  • Save emergency contacts on the mobile phone: Store emergency numbers such as the police, fire department, hospitals and family members.
  • Pay attention to emergency alerts: These are free notifications received on cellphones as part of a public safety system. To enable them, go to settings, select notifications and choose the emergency alerts option.
  • Send text messages instead of calling: Text messages can go through faster than voice calls because they use significantly fewer network resources.

At home:

  • Use surge protectors: They can prevent damage to television, modems and converter boxes caused by lightning or power fluctuations.
  • Download Liberty Go: The application allows access to the company’s channel lineup live through the mobile device at no additional cost.
  • Use Liberty Everywhere: Customers can also access television content through Liberty Everywhere on several digital applications.
  • Download content to watch later: Download content directly to devices to watch later without an internet connection.
  • Restart devices: If there is power but no service, Liberty advises disconnecting devices and waiting three minutes before reconnecting them.
