Having been through 5 wildfires now I think this would be a kindness as well as a good idea. Our Countywide alert systems don’t work with cellphones so many of us would not be able to obtain emergency information without a landline. Not being able to receive this information because my number had changed could worsen an existing problem or fail to prevent a new one. If you have not ever been in an evacuation you have no idea how confusing and complicated it is to try to return to your home which is no longer there. With more and more people moving out of cities into rural areas where there is little to no cell reception, this will become a more frequent problem assuming we don’t stop the disasters by reversing climate change.
