The National Weather Service advises that a NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio could save your life some day, “When seconds count, a NOAA Weather Radio provides critical information necessary to immediately take action and stay safe.”
During an emergency, National Weather Service forecasters interrupt routine weather radio programming and send out a special tone that activates NOAA weather radios in the listening area. The tone alarm feature can sound an alert from a “standby” setting and provides immediate information about a life-threatening situation. Hearing-impaired people can also get these warnings by connecting weather radios with alarm tones to other kinds of attention-getting devices such as strobe lights, pagers, bed shakers and printed text equipment.
