It's never a good time to lose electricity. But in the summer, living without power for a few hours (or a few days) usually isn't considered dangerous. It's a different story in the winter, at least in those parts of the country where temperatures drop below freezing. If you want to be prepared for anything and everything, picking up a emergency radio like this one would be a good place to start. Not only does the rugged, portable radio tune into three bands—AM, FM, and NOAA VHF—but its built-in flashlight and cellphone charger make it a multipurpose, there-when-you-need it lifesaver. Available at Amazon; $21.95.
