Why You Need an Emergency Radio

In the event of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane or earthquake, the power may be out, and the phone networks jammed. Even in the case of a pandemic, you may find that so many people are using their mobile devices that you can’t get online to find the information that you need. In situations like these, a hand-cranked emergency radio will keep you in touch with the outside world.

Getting weather updates and government announcements are only two of the reasons why you should have an emergency radio in your preparedness kit. Here are all the reasons why you need an emergency radio.

Receive Emergency Alerts

In the event of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will issue weather alerts. These weather alerts will include essential advice, such as the need to evacuate. NOAA weather alerts will interrupt standard radio programs. If you have a NOAA weather alert emergency radio, your radio will turn on when warnings get issued for your region.

Keep the Phone Lines Open

When there is an emergency, phone lines will likely get jammed by people looking for information. That can hinder the emergency services, and it prevents people with an immediate need for help getting through. If you use an emergency radio to keep up to date, you will get the information you need faster, and you won’t be jamming up the networks.

Charging Other Devices

Some hand-cranked emergency radios have USB ports for charging other devices. As mentioned above, it is best to avoid using mobile devices in an emergency, but if you must use your phone, you will be able to charge your device with a hand-cranked emergency radio.

Use it as a Flashlight

The best emergency radios include an LED flashlight. If you have a hand-cranked radio with a flashlight, you won’t need to rely on batteries for a light at night.

Portable

You can carry an emergency radio with you wherever you go. So, if you need to evacuate your home, you can keep up to date with weather alerts and the news.

Entertainment

Entertainment may not be your top priority in an emergency, even so, you may be glad of something to break the monotony if you are without power for a long time. An emergency radio will also be useful if you have children with you. A radio will keep the kids entertained, and it will take their minds off the situation.

Emergency Radio Buying Guide

Emergency radios are available with a variety of features. Here’s a quick guide to help you find the best emergency radio for your needs.

NOAA Alerts, AM, and FM

Most of the best emergency radios will receive AM, FM signals, and NOAA alerts. Having a variety of bands will enable you to access more information in a crisis.

SAME Technology

Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) technology will alert you to warnings in your area, even if the radio is not on. SAME technology will also allow you to restrict emergency notifications to only those that are relevant to your location.

Power Sources

A radio is only of any use in an emergency if it has power. So, look for an emergency radio that can use several power sources. The most reliable power source for an emergency radio is hand-cranking. But having batteries and a solar panel will also be useful.

USB Charging Port

Most rechargeable devices are rechargeable via a USB port. So, having a USB charging port on your emergency radio will also be useful in an emergency if the power is out for a long time.

Flashlight

You will find that some emergency radios have other features as well. Some have compasses, some have clocks, and some even have things like bottle openers. The most useful extra feature, though, will be a flashlight.

Durable and Waterproof

In an emergency, you may not be able to shelter indoors. So, you should look for a radio that is waterproof or water-resistant. You will also need a device that won’t break if you drop it or something falls on it, so look for a durable emergency radio that is shock resistant.
