NOAA ALL Hazards Weather Radio
About NOAA ALL Hazards Weather Radio
NOAA ALL Hazards Weather Radio is a service of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
of the United States Department of Commerce. It is the "Voice of the National Weather Service,"
providing continuous, 24 hour broadcasts of the latest weather information directly from National
Weather Service offices. This service is provided free of charge, 7 days a week.
Routine programming includes the latest weather conditions, weather summaries for the vicinity
and surrounding areas, short term forecasts of significant weather expected within the next
3 hours, and forecasts of temperatures and precipitation out to 5 days.
One of the most important reasons to own a weather radio is the ability
to receive up to the second information on severe weather, such as hurricanes, flash floods, severe
thunderstorms, large hail, strong and damaging winds, and tornadoes.
During severe weather, National Weather Service Forecasters can interrupt the routine
weather broadcasts and substitute special warning messages. Specially designed warning receivers
can be activated as well. When this occurs, such receivers sound an alarm or automatically turn on
alerting the listener to the pending hazard. These warning alarm receivers are especially valuable to
schools, hospitals, large public areas, public-safety agencies, and the news media.
"Where do I get a NOAA ALL Hazards Weather Radio?"
Your local electronics store, such as Radio Shack, will most likely carry
a NOAA Weather Radio receiver with the tone alert feature. The price of
around $15-$25 is minimal compared to the safety and peace of mind it can
offer you and your family.
