Sirius Emergencies

Disaster strikes when you least expect it. Sirius and XM have committed to providing up-to-date information hen an emergency presents itself anywhere in the country.

Sirius and XM have given the Red Cross a number of receivers for emergency purposes. As satrad becomes more widespread throughout the country, Sirius XM has the opportunity to aid greatly in coverage of these events for those affected by it. They also provide safety and evacuation information. Sirius XM should consider activating in the region. Work with terrestrial services in the area to notify anyone in the region about the service.

From a business perspective, it shows consumers the value in satrad. From a cummunity erspective, it saves lives.
