When an emergency strikes and the lights go out, it’s essential to have access to a reliable off-grid source of news. At CES 2013 [2] Eton just unveiled their new ZoneGuard [3] weather radios, which are equipped with features to alert you when a disaster occurs. The radio is connected to early-warning systems, so its LED beacons will flash and warnings will scroll across its screen to keep you in the loop. Specific area message encoding (SAME) from NOAA [4] lets you set up to 25 locations. Powered by an AC adapter or AA battery, the set-up is ready for on or off-grid operation.

Partnering with the American Red Cross, Eton has rolled out the latest in their line of disaster-preparedness equipment. The ZoneGuard radio is a AM/FM digitally tuned radio that shares a portion of its profits to the relief organization with every purchase. Each ZoneGuard Q1 costs around $40, with the Plus model at $80 and each additional warning module at $30. Able to be programmed to your specific location and store up to 25 in total, the ZoneGuard is a great tool to help you and your family stay alert and on top of a natural disaster. Standing at 7 x 4.1 x 1.1 inches, the radios are small enough to fit into almost any corner.
