The product works well, but does go through batteries very quickly if used to scan for weather alerts. I wish it came with a power supply, or at least an amp requirement to buy a correct one. (I could not find amp reqirement).Read More
It's smaller than I thought, it's palm size, like an old transistor radio. Can't set it for continuous monitoring on batteries, they die in about a day. You have to buy a separate a/c adapter. I haven't gotten one yet, but I'm guessing $5-10 more for that.Read More

How to Prepare For a Disease Outbreak
How to Prepare For a Disease Outbreak | Overstock? How to Prepare For a Disease Outbreak From the common cold to more serious viruses, like Ebola, infectious diseases require everyone to be on guard. In the worst case scenario, a widespread infectious disease outbreak could not only endanger you and your family, but may also cause major disruptions in basic public services. Take these preventative steps and make an emergency preparedness plan, so you can be better prepared for disease outbreaks. Back to Top Prevent the Spread of Disease Your first layer of defense with any disease outbreak is preventing the spread of the disease. Practicing good hygiene is critical. This includes washing your hands with soap and hot water, and using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available. Always avoid direct contact with infected people and bodily fluids of those carrying a disease. This includes avoiding items infected people may have handled, and public places, such as hospitals, where infected people are being treated. Shop All Sanitation & Hygiene Update Your First-Aid Supplies Preparing your home, office, and vehicle with a basic first-aid kit and medical supplies can help treat sickness and emergencies as they happen. First-aid kits for disease outbreaks should include face masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer alongside other basic medical supplies, such as bandages and a first aid manual. This will help you be prepared to treat basic medical issues, and will be immeasurably valuable if medical professionals are unable to respond quickly to more serious emergencies. Shop All First Aid & Medical Supplies Maintain Your Food and Water Storage When it comes to widespread emergencies, having a supply of food and water will help you weather the storm.

It's important to stay up-to-date on preventive measures as outlined by reputable and trustworthy sources. Be sure to add into your emergency supplies an emergency radio, solar battery chargers, or a generator that will keep your communication devices powered and connected. Local public health agencies are an important resource for disease prevention and treatment. Do your research before a possible outbreak, and be sure to include in your emergency kits any important phone numbers or broadcast frequencies used by your local agencies. Larger organizations such as the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or the WHO, World Health Organization, can be an important resource during a disease outbreak as well. Both the WHO and CDC will be able to track and prevent the spread of disease on a worldwide basis, while keeping the public informed on the best practices for preventing the spread of any contagious disease.
