    “We are excited about the new American Red Cross FR1 preparedness radio that is being announced at CES 2015. The American Red Cross encourages everyone to be prepared for emergencies and disasters. Since these events can strike suddenly, individuals and families can make a difference by gathering important emergency supplies, making a plan and being informed, before they happen. The FR1 is a great way to start,” said Steve Glockenmeier, American Red Cross Vice President Consumer Channels Preparedness and Health and Safety Services. 

"Our core mission for the past 30 years has been to prepare people for life’s unexpected situations; either at home or on-the-go, and to help people stay connected and informed when these events do occur,” said Esmail Hozour of Etón Corporation. “The FR1 is an easy way for people to stay connected anytime and in the event of unexpected events. We urge everyone to take the proper steps to prepare their loved ones for emergencies."

The FR1 will be available in Q2 of 2015 for $39.99. To learn more about Etón Corporation and its products, please visit www.etoncorp.com. To learn more about the American Red Cross, please visit www.redcross.org.
