This month's new technology is not so much about "new" technology, rather it's about making sure everyone has this technology available to them.
The piece of technology being referred to is an emergency radio. Almost everyone has experienced some type of environmental issue which has caused either power, cable service, or both to fail. Knowing what is going on can help alleviate concerns and fears, and provide you with information on how to proceed.
There are many emergency radios on the market. Below are some features which your emergency radio should have.
• AM/FM radio
• NOAA weather radio with alert ability
• Multiple power source: AC, battery, solar, hand crank
Additional nice features include:
• Built-in flashlight
• USB ports to charge cell phones
• Two-way radio
The radio should take standard batteries and keeping a few extra sets handy is always a good idea. Check the radio every 3 or 4 months to ensure proper operation and also look inside the battery compartment to make sure there is no battery corrosion.
