Today, in a suburb just outside Minneapolis, Bob Renning, a Good Samaritan, somehow found the strength to pry open the door of Michael Johannes’ burning Chevrolet TrailBlazer and saved him from certain death. Now after seeing the footage at Canoe cNews, it made me rethink the usefulness of features on today’s emergency gadgets that we think we’ll never use, but in actual fact could one day save our life.
We never know when the power is going to go out so it’s a good idea to make sure that when the time comes we are ready. Now not everyone has the ability to keep a generator around, but certainly a small gadget that’s self powered to help get the news, the weather and even charge other small gadgets would certainly be welcome.
In case of an emergency, and these days the news is full of reports of them, it’s good to be like a Boy Scout and be prepared! So Etón Corporation, in partnership with The Canadian Red Cross, has created Power Pack, a package that includes a multi-powered multi-function emergency preparedness radio and an LED blackout light.
