by Tim Wesley, Natural News:

It’s crucial that you have the right communication equipment during emergency situations. Your ability to communicate with the right people can spell the difference between life and death. Having the right communications tool can save you during times of crisis. That being said, there are five essential communications devices you must have during emergency situations, according to

  • NOAA emergency radio with specific area messaging encoder – This device will alert you of any impending weather disturbance or hazard that’s specific to your area. It filters data so you only receive specific, timely information to help you can effectively prepare for disaster.
  • Battery-powered AM/FM radio – Emergency situations sometimes mean going back to the basics. That’s why a battery-powered radio is a crucial when prepping for a disaster. You can rely on it to operate even without electricity.

    There are even models that are solar-powered or cranked by hand, which can last for days.

  • Scanner radio – A scanner radio can scan for and locate channels that may offer a lifeline during times of emergency. This does more than receive police and emergency calls; you can also use it to listen to amateur, utility, military, and family radio service channels. It can also pick up two-way radio signals. It comes in different forms: handheld, in-dash, under-dash, and home radio. It’s useful when calling out for help because it can pick up signals from as short as a few feet to thousands of miles. You can also monitor UHF, VHF, and WFM frequencies.
  • Two-way radio – A two-way radio creates a private communication line between people who are tuned in on the same channel, letting you keep in contact with your group during emergencies. You can rely on this to communicate with the outside world since it operates without electricity and doesn’t depend on telephone lines or cell towers. When choosing a two-way radio, make sure to pick one that accommodates the common battery and has a rechargeable pack. Additionally, look for something that allows you to scan a large number of channels.
