American Red Cross Emergency Radio


What with natural disasters now the norm rather than the exception, Amazon's got on board and opened the Emergency Preparedness Store, gathering everything together under one virtual roof.

Hundreds of items for use in crises, along with all sorts of advice, checklists and whatnot.


Jura Koncius, in her June 29 Washington Post story, featured the American Red Cross Model FR400 Emergency Radio (above and below).

Backup hand-crank power, emergency lights, AM, FM and NOAA weather alert channels and a cellphone charger in case your fuel cell runs out.


The model shown costs $59.99 and there are others on the Amazon website.
