Weather Radio

To stay safe in extreme weather, you need advanced warning. Weather radios broadcast warnings, watches, forecasts and other non-weather related hazard information.

You'll only get alerts for the county you need. Alerts are available in Spanish.

The radio is recommended by the Department of Homeland Security.
