Technology

When an emergency strikes, people need reliable information – now.  Cell phone networks may be down.  There’s no electricity.  New technologies aren’t always the best solution.

Radio is the most reliable way to reach people in need.  Our solar-powered products also have a wind-up option ensuring 24/7 listening access.  Some products offer an MP3 option for pre-recorded content and can record new messages. Others can top up mobile phones.  Learn more about our product range below:
