According to an article by emergency communicator Steve Aberle, 

During major emergencies and disasters (NIMS Type 1 incident complexity), there may be major failures and overloading of the communications infrastructure, including the degradation or loss of the electrical grid, cellular phone network, Internet, public safety radio systems, and AM/FM radio systems. 
In such cases, supplemental emergency communications resources are needed in quantity and for extended periods until regular communications are restored.
