Cell Phone in Emergencies

You may know this already — I do now.

When there's a brown/blackout, 9/11, shooting etc emergency the voice cell phone system gets shut down due to the overload of callers, but,
text messaging continues to work, even if queing occurs the message will get through.

Advise those you need to to text message if and when you and they are in the midst of an emergency.
