Emergency Radio & Communications

Information is critical to being sufficiently prepared and ensuring your safety during emergency situations. Our typical methods of obtaining information such as television, internet, and telephones usually become unavailable during emergency situations due to loss of power and network overloading. An emergency radio is one of the most reliable tools to get important information, even during a time of crisis. Your health, well-being, and survival depend on being kept well informed and being able to reach family and support agencies.

At PrepareDirect, we offer only quality emergency communication products to ensure your safety during disaster situations. Radio is one of the most common sources of information during emergencies. There are several options for a hand crank radio, allowing you to be informed of critical information even without power. Other survival radio products include portable batteries that use power sources other than electricity, including battery and solar power, to ensure you stay informed even during emergency situations.


GPS Beacon & Communication Equipment

Included in our communication products are several GPS beacon products, ideal for use not only in emergency situations, but also in many other circumstances. For example; a GPS beacon is ideal for those in the remote areas of the great outdoors, because it makes it easier for emergency personnel to locate those off the grid, deep within the forests. A GPS beacon quickly relays your coordinates to search and rescue satellites, which greatly lowers search time and increases your chances of survival if emergencies occur.

Other emergency communication products include portable two way radios for emergency personnel and families to quickly communicate in emergency situations. Radio options include conventional two-way, CB radio, VHF and more.

At PrepareDirect, we’ve been helping individuals, families and emergency personnel prepare with the right products since 1975. Browse our products, or visit our emergency preparedness blog at LearnToPrepare.com to get the products and knowledge you need to ensure your safety no matter what situations you may encounter.
