Afterwards
After the attack, rumours were everywhere. According to some, the Japanese had invaded the mainland, by striking San Francisco.

Like this event, you and your family are going to need information.


Emergency Alert System
Here in these United States, the F.C.C. with the assistance of F.E.M.A. provide citizens and our guests of these United States with an emergency alert system. This system allows the President to immediately notify the country of an event.

Receivers
For wide scale national events, you don't need a specific radio because the Emergency Alert System will override almost all communications.

However, ... To receive weather related or state and local emergency notifications, your family will need a weather radio.

These radio are available in a variety of styles and prices.

Which One?
 I can't tell which one to purchase that's not how I operate.

But, ... You will want one that has S.A.M.E. and a battery backup capability.

AM/FM
Needless to say, you will also want to purchase a battery-powered AM/FM radio. This radio will be used to stay informed for events.

That didn't sound right. How about ...

An AM/FM radio will allow you and your family to receive updates about national, regional, state, and some local events.


One More
For families with a larger budget, purchasing a Shortwave radio is another option to stay informed, during an event.

Of course, like any other radio, they are available in several different price ranges with various options, like having a power pack (transformer) as main power with batteries as a secondary power source.

A Day That Will Live ...
People hate you and your family, for various reasons. Some people hate you because of the policies of our government while others hate your family because of their religious or political beliefs.

Some of these folks will attack us, head on, like the Japanese did on December 7th while others will attack us using asymmetric warfare techniques such as ...

I Apologize
