The Emergency Alert System (EAS) can address the entire
nation on very short notice in case of a grave threat or
national emergency. Ask if your local radio and TV stations
participate in the EAS.
National Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio (NWR) is a nationwide
network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather

Determine if NOAA Weather Radio is available where you live. If
so, consider purchasing a NOAA weather radio receiver.
Ask local authorities about methods used to
