NOAA Weather Radio
A National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio (NWR) is your single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information. Consisting of a network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office, a NWR provides official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In conjunction with Federal, State, and Local Emergency Managers and other public officials, NWR also broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards – including natural (severe storms or flooding), environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills), and public safety (such as AMBER alerts or 911 Telephone outages). You can purchase a NOAA Weather Radio at any general merchandise store or numerous online retailers.
