NOAA All-Hazards Radios

The Nelson County Emergency Management Office would like to stress the importance of citizens and businesses owning an all-hazards radio.

All-hazards radios are the best way for your home and business to receive emergency information, watches, and warnings directly from the National Weather Service. The radios can be purchased from many local retail stores.

An important feature is that the radio will automatically turn itself on to alert you when a warning has been issued no matter what time of day. The newer radios can be programmed specifically for your county and some of the radios let you program specifically which warnings you may want to receive. Let's "Be Prepared!"

The following National Weather Service Web site has additional information on the radios and programming codes:  NOAA Weather Radios.
