Halloween Safety Must Haves: Radios

With Halloween just around the corner TrekrTech is excited to help you prepare for whatever you may need this Halloween season. Throughout our Halloween series we will share plenty of safety must haves for the whole family this October. First up in this spooky series are radios. 

Between haunted houses, trick or treating, and everything else sometimes there are some many people around you lose cell phone service or those long and haunted nights mean that your cell phone battery dies before you get a chance to reach out to reconnect with your family and friends. Especially for children and young teens that may not have a cell phone yet but need to stay connected with you, radios are a perfect option as they are simple and easy to use and will keep you connected no matter what the situation the night may throw at you. A few radios we specifically suggest are the Cobra SH130-4 Family Walkie Talkie 4 Pack, the Cobra CX190-4, and the Cobra CXT385.
