With the most recent storm on the minds of many in this country that has devastated many in Southeast Texas, we find that many of us have been thinking of ways to prepare our own families in the case of an emergency. Well with that said, I find that with September being Emergency Preparedness Month, it is the perfect time to ensure we have the products we might need in our own homes so that we can be ready for when disaster can strike. So when I was sent a set of the Motorola Talkabout T480 to have on hand in case of a emergency from the people at Motorola, I was pleased to not only check them out but also share some information on these radios with our readers!
See with the Motorola Talkabout T480, we can add them to our home emergency kit to help us as a family stay connected when the unexpected hits. Each of the Motorola Talkabout T480 comes with a wall/desk stand accessory, and the radios can be used as a traditional weather alert radio or as a two-way radio so we can keep in touch if something were to happen, like say cell phones are not working. When we keep ours plugged in using the stand, we can feel safe knowing that they will be ready to use and fully charged when needed, and if disaster were to strike, I like knowing that the Motorola Talkabout T480 will still receive NOAA weather alerts automatically.
Along with the access we can get with the two way radio and the weather alerts through the NOAA, I like that there is a flashlight that automatically turns on when there is a power outage. Other features with the T480 include an emergency alert button, safety whistle, belt clip, NOAA weather channels for continuous updates and alerts, and an FM Radio and up to 35-mile range. With the white/red colors, they are great for having in our emergency kit, since the colors are just like the American Red Cross colors.
And I like that along with having them in the home, we can take them on the road, to the park, camping, and more all while being able to stay connected to changing weather conditions. Which in all, makes the Motorola Talkabout T480, a must have to keep on hand in any home and have to go with your families emergency kit for when there are power outages during storms and more!
