Weather Radio Buying Guide

Your home is where you want to feel safe. You keep your home and family safe with smoke detectors, carbon dioxide detectors, deadbolt locks, outdoor lights, security systems, and maybe even one of those new high-tech doorbells that you can control with your smartphone. But what about protecting your loved ones in the event of fast-moving hazardous weather or civil emergencies? One of the most reliable ways to stay informed – instantly and accurately – is with an NOAA weather radio.

WR210 Desktop Weather Radio

WR120 weather radio and NOAA Weather Alert Radio

The most popular weather radio in the US and Canada. Program it to go off for only your county, and de-select products for which you do not want to hear an audible alert.

Choose this radio if you: 
  • Want to receive instant alerts from your local weather forecast office or emergency manager
  • Want a radio that, once programmed, requires nothing more than pushing one button to listen or silence
  • Want a device that will automatically awaken you when emergencies threaten, even wildfires
  • Want to keep your family safe at home while you are traveling
Best tip for this radio: Turn off Amber alerts and other bothersome notices, so you are alerted for only the “big” events: tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, nuclear/radiological/chemical emergencies, evacuation, and shelter-in-place orders. These events are all locked-in for your protection. BUY NOW
