The most important appliance in a home is a NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio. There’s no better way to get a current, accurate weather forecast at any time of day or night. During times of uncertain or even stormy weather, the NOAA weather radio can keep you informed about approaching weather advisories, watches and warnings. During times of extreme weather, the National Weather Service severe weather warnings provide action-oriented messages that spell out how to take shelter and be safe from any oncoming threat.
There are all sorts of weather radios. From those tabletop models that include high-endAM/FM recievers to small pocket-size radios that fit in a tackle box, backpack or picnic basket. As long as they’re turned on in alert mode, the radios will remain quiet, except when the National Weather Service issues an alert. The take action message can mean the difference between a disaster avoided and an emergency to be handled.
