NOAA Weather Radio is Crucial for Emergency Kits

October 26, 2012

Kansas City, MO – During a power outage, receiving potentially life-saving information becomes increasingly difficult.  Unfortunately, power failures are common during tropical storms and high-wind events.  Having a NOAA Weather Alert Radio that can run on back-up batteries provides an extra layer of protection to ensure you still receive valuable storm updates directly from the National Weather Service even after power is lost.

Prepare for power fluctuations in advance by stocking a waterproof container with essentials such as nonperishable food, bottled water, a weather alert radio, flashlight and extra batteries.  Some portable weather radios such as the Midland ER102 include a hand crank power option and an AM/FM tuner.

NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts official National Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and hazard information 24 hours a day.  The NOAA Weather Radio network consists of more than 1000 transmitters in all 50 states and in the U.S. territories, covering 98% of the U.S. population.

The Department of Homeland Security and the National Weather Service recommend a NOAA Weather Alert Radio in every home and business.  Weather Radio has been called the “indoor tornado siren” for its ability to alert you to dangerous weather, even when you’re asleep.
