NOAA Weather Radio

NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio

Emergencies such as a tornado touchdown can happen with little to no warning, leaving you only seconds to take action to protect yourself and your family.  SCEMD recommends having a NOAA certified tone-alert weather radio with a back up power supply (batteries or hand crank).  You want to make sure your NOAA weather radio is programmable for your area so you get the most up to date information about a potential emergency.Use these links for more about NOAA weather radio, including instructions on how to program one for your area.
