Hurricanes are a reality in Florida and turn off the electricity, cell phone coverage, radio and television for tens of thousands of people. Some businesses, hospitals and families have added their own backup generators that kick in within a minute or less of any power failure. Most families do not have these backup power supplies and within a day their cellphones, tablets, computers and other battery operated devices no longer work. The refrigerators, stoves, air conditioners, televisions, radios and other equipment that relies on connection to power stopped working when the power failed.
Cellphones, tablets and computers contain our connections to the world and without them we are emotionally stressed, suffering a form of computer withdrawal. Younger generations are so involved with their phones and computers that some have never experienced being without them. 
The importance of these devices dominates our lives. In these emergencies we need them to call for help, contact friends and families, lookup information on the Internet and more. In a major hurricane like Andrew, the devastation was so complete that there were no street signs. GPS would pinpoint your location if you have a GPS device but the Internet was down so none of the map applications that depend upon the Internet would work.

After the hurricane passes and the rain is over people need electricity to power their home charge their devices. The electrical grid may be down for weeks in some neighborhoods while along major roads it is restored within a day. The major roads are cleared first so that help can arrive from outside the area and power restored for gas stations, food stores, hospitals and other important businesses.

There are many problems and various groups are addressing specific problems. The one left up to time is electrical power for cell phones and other computer devices.

This project is designed to create a network of volunteers and provide them with the blueprints for how they can help those without electricity and to bring news and information to them. A newsletter, a USB drive filled with a library of PDF files on every conceivable problem from snake bites, broken bones, tainted water, bug bites, mosquitoes, alligators and more. Civilized people are not used to living in times of no electricity, no television and no cell phones and most don't know how to take care of various injuries.
