Gear Midland E-Ready Emergency Portable Radio Incoming May 16, 2016 Join the Conversation It’s the right time of year to be thinking about emergency preparedness. If a portable radio is on your shopping list, you might be interested in the Midland E-Ready Emergency Portable Radio. Here’s what they have to say. Midland E+Ready Emergency Portable Radio In 2011, residents had a mere 20 minutes of warning before the Joplin Tornado tore through Missouri, claiming 158 lives. Flash floods can bring walls of water from 10-20 feet high smashing and carrying cars and everything else in their path. Hurricanes can blow 160 mph covering thousands of miles. Emergency preparedeness is one part awareness, and one part the supplies you have “at the ready.” A weather alert radio tops FEMA’s Recommended Supply Checklist – and, Midland has just the radio for you. Small, portable and perfect for taking virtually anywhere, the E+READYTM Emergency Portable Weather Alert Radio (EH55VP) offers the connection you need to stay in-the-know of any civic or natural disaster. Part of the brand new E+READY series, the radio marries value and the most advanced radio technology, possibly making this little radio the best protection you can have in the face of disaster. For more than a half-century, Midland has helped keep Americans ready and safe before and when hurricanes, tornados, wildfires and earthquakes hit. Early warning is key and the portable and rechargeable Midland Weather Alert Radio is a small but mighty option to have on hand. Compact enough to fit into a small pocket on your person, or in your bag or pack, the radio features the company’s legendary weather alert radio capabilities with weather alerts.
