We’d like to think the world is a safe place, but there are disasters both large and small happening each and every day. For larger disasters, as we’ve seen with the devastating hurricanes in the fall of 2017, communication may not be readily available, and you and your family could be waiting for assistance for hours or even days. This is an unfortunate reality. During this time, you want to stay in the loop for all the latest happenings. In addition to the communication aspects, the BaoFeng BF-F8HP also includes an FM radio to keep you connected to stations such as your local weather channel. Even in smaller emergency situations, communication can make a world of difference, as you are better able to coordinate with your local community.
