Ride Out The Storm With RadioShack During National Weather Preparedness Month

FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- National Weather Preparedness Month is the perfect time to make sure your home is ready for emergencies. As the most convenient and comprehensive weather prep resource for thousands of neighborhoods nationwide, RadioShack recommends the following five tips to minimize the impact of bad weather:
  1. Make sure everyone in your family or workplace knows the escape routes and the best place to take shelter.
  2. Make sure your emergency kit contains enough fresh water and non-perishable foods to last 3-5 days per person. Also include a can opener, first aid kit, flashlights and extra batteries. It is a good idea to refresh your flashlight and portable radio batteries once a year.
  3. Since power may go out, consider keeping a hand-crank battery operated radio on hand. Weather radios with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather bands, the organization responsible for issuing warnings during life-threatening weather situations, can give you as much as eight minutes lead time.
  4. Protect your electronics by plugging them into a surge protector or unplugging them when power outages and surges are likely.
  5. Cell phones are often lifelines to the outside world in an emergency, especially since texts and data may be able to get through when phone calls can't.
    • Keep those lifelines online with backup power such as portable power banks or solar chargers.
    • Your car battery can also provide backup power with a car charger – or a power inverter for larger items like laptops. 

Your local RadioShack and carry everything you need with one of the largest weather and emergency radio assortments available. Associates are also standing by to help you pick the right products to protect your electronics and keep you connected.  In fact, through August of this year with the help of our customers, RadioShack has raised more than $450,000 in donations to the American Red Cross directly benefitting communities impacted by tornados. Disasters can strike at any time and providing assistance to those in need is important to our associates and our neighborhoods.

RadioShack encourages local customers to closely follow their local emergency response directions, including evacuation orders. For a complete emergency preparedness guide, download the FEMA/American Red Cross checklist at or learn more at
