Emergency – Trimline Phone

The Trimline phone is a MUST for any household that still has a hard-line phone connection. This phone does NOT run on electricity so in the event of an emergency, you will be able to make and receive calls*.

You can count on 24/7 access*, regardless of any possible power failure that would knock out the more common base-dependent satellite/FiOS/digital lines, which all require electricity to work.

This phone will give you a dial tone even in a local area power blackout*.

*provided the phone lines aren’t down too.

  1. This is precisely why you’ll still see these phones in buildings and homes. They may not be as portable as cell phones, but their reliability in an emergency warrants keeping them around.

  2. Great tip! Cell phone towers get jammed during emergencies, too. A good, old fashioned hard line home phone is handy to keep around, just in case.
