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 emergency alerts.

  • They broadcast warnings and information for all types of hazards, from weather, technological, and natural hazards to national emergencies.

  • Emergency Alert 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 All-Hazard radios.

  • Want to know the status of mountain passes and if they are safe to travel through this weekend? Turn on your radio for the local pass conditions report!

  • Interested in helping ensure the safety of missing children? Tone Alert All-Hazard radios will supply you with important "Amber Alert" broadcasts.

  • Not concerned about high winds in the Strait of Juan de Fuca? Tone Alert All-Hazard radios employ Same Area Message Encoding (SAME) digital programming technology, making any hazard information you receive specific to Grant county.

  • Do you work in a surrounding county, but live in Grant County? Want to know what's going on in the area around your workplace or school? Program your radio to receive hazard information for specific areas you are interested in.

  • Take your radio on vacation! Tone-Alert radios are battery-powered so you do not have to worry about having your TV or AM/FM radio turned on to hear emergency alerts.

  • Tone-Alert All-Hazard radios even come in unique versions for people with special hearing needs.

  • The signal level of Grant County is reliable, with the exception of downtown Ephrata, which has difficult reception due to the topography.

Make sure you and your family can receive warnings for natural and manmade disasters and invest in a Tone Alert All-Hazard radio today!
