As Hurricane season draws to a close, there are still weather emergencies out there and we would like to get you prepared. For the majority of Americans, the upcoming months will bring plenty of snow, ice, and sleet. If you are stuck with no power or form of communication, our American Red Cross emergency radios can help you keep your cell phone charged as well as alert you to any weather updates.
Below are three of our best American Red Cross based products, along with their PDF manual, and YouTube video. This will give you a better explanation on how each product works and how you can operate them properly during an emergency.

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
- Turn the crank for about 90 seconds. This will result in 30-40 minutes of low volume play.
- Place the unit directly in sunlight. The solar power adapter on the top of the unit charges it automatically. About 8-10 hours in the sun will allow about 3-5 hours of play.
- Select AM, FM or WB (weather band) channel 1-7 with the band selector switch. For FM and WB, fully extend the telescopic antenna. When using only AM the antenna need not be extended.
- Adjust the volume with the VOLUME control.
- Tune stations with the TUNE knob, or tune in WB with the 7-position switch.
