Eton FR350 emerg. radio

A radio can be an essential device in an emergency. Broadcasts will often tell listeners when a disaster is over, for instance, or where to go for supplies. Eton's FR350 may be the ultimate in emergency radios: not only does it receive AM, FM, and shortwave broadcasts, it comes with a built-in siren and flashlight. Also, while normally powered by NiMH batteries, a hand-crank can supply energy when all else fails. The body is water-resistant, and if you need to make a phone call, you can use the radio to recharge a cellphone. You can buy black or silver models for 40 at Nevada, or an American Red Cross-branded model for $60 US at Amazon.
