NOAA All Hazards Weather Radios
The safety of employees
and visitors is an absolute priority and having a Tone
Alert radio available is a key part in our emergency
planning. Consider adding a Tone Alert radio to Grant
emergency plan and encourage your friends and family to
do so, too.
Why is having a Tone
Alert All-Hazard radio so important? Here's why:
How will you know if
there is an emergency threatening your family
at 2:00 AM? Your Tone Alert All-Hazard radio
notifies you if there's an emergency by providing
the most comprehensive weather and emergency
information available to the public. It will sit
quietly on your desk or nightstand until an alarm is
sounded. You do not have to worry about having your
television or AM/FM radio turned on to hear
warnings and information for all types of hazards,
from weather, technological, and natural hazards to
System (EAS) messages
automatically trigger the Tone Alert All-Hazard
radio, sending important public safety information
to people when they are home, at work, or in school.
This area of the country was the first to implement
the linking of the EAS system to Tone Alert
