Stay prepared - and informed - with this family emergency tool. The perfect addition to any family's or individual's emergency toolkit, the Advanced Portable Emergency Alert Radio helps you with any number of needs you may have when disaster strikes. The Advanced Portable Emergency Alert Radio features an Alert function that lets the user know when the National Weather Service issues Imminent Weather or Civil Emergency warnings in your area. With its SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding) technology, you can customize alerts to receive them only for your county or those surrounding your location. The hand crank and solar panel make it easy to keep the LED flashlight, siren and radio charged up. A USB-compatible cell phone charging port is also included to make mobile communications easier. An AM/FM radio also includes weather band channels to get 24/7 emergency updates from the National Weather Service and other emergency agencies.
