USING FAMILY RADIO SERVICE -- FRS -- "WALKIE TALKIES"
IN HURRICANE ZONES

 

Before the storm hits, it is important that you and your family are practiced and prepared with using FRS (Family Radio Service) walkie talkies.

The good news:  You may already have what you need.  These are the same walkie talkies that millions of families already own for biking, hiking, camping, boating, fishing, and staying in contact with family members at malls and amusement parks.

If you need to purchase FRS walkie talkies, you can get a set of two for as little as $20 at Walmart, Costco, Home Depot, Lowes, Target, Staples, Office Depot, Best Buy, and other retailers.  Buy at least three sets of extra batteries for each radio. Alkaline batteries are preferred.  Rechargeable batteries cannot be charged if your electricity goes out.

PREPARE NOW!
