American Red Cross FR400 Emergency Radio


If you're feeling nervous about "the big one" - whatever that might be, take a look at the Eton American Red Cross
Emergency Radio.

The FR400 is water-resistant, has LED lights, and a cell phone charger built in. It can also be recharged using a hand-crank power generator to charge the internal rechargeable Ni-MH battery pack in times when you can't access the grid. The set has easy access to NOAA weather channels and TV-VHF channels, which can be a boon when weather reports and emergency broadcast information becomes a necessity. I guess battery-powered or hand-crank radios are on the "it" list for emergencies. While I often fixate on the lighthearted and cute side of gadgetry, nothing is more important than being ready and prepared.

The American Red Cross recommends that each household have a battery-powered or hand-crank radio for vital information during a crisis. Included with every Red Cross radio purchase is an emergency preparedness guide that highlights the important steps to preparing for a disaster to protect yourself and your loved ones.
