The American Red Cross encourages everyone to be prepared for emergencies and disasters. Since these events can strike suddenly, individuals and families can make a difference by gathering important emergency supplies, making a plan and being informed. Being Red Cross Ready is to join the ranks of the millions of people who are preparing themselves today to face and overcome tomorrow’s emergencies. Simple preparedness actions can equip people with the necessities that can make all the difference should an emergency occur.
The Eton FRX2 Emergency Radio can be powered with a hand-crank (one minute of cranking provides up to 15 minutes of radio or flashlight use). A solar panel has also been added to this edition which allows for a passive charging option when sunlight is available or it can be charged with DC power via an included mini-USB cable. Once charged, the radio can relay power to a cell phone or other USB devices.
