Light & Communication

This is one of those sections where time-of-year is going to make a BIG difference. In 2018, Salem, Oregon’s winter solstice will leave us only 8 hours, 46 minutes and 29 seconds of daylight.¬†Should the Earthquake strike near that day, considerable sources of light will be needed for you and your family in the weeks that follow…

Both the flashlights and radios listed below will need batteries. More, some of the weather radios have flashlights built in, making light & communication tricky categories to separate. Our family has found it easiest to prepare these simultaneously.
