NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards
The National Weather Service (NWS) continuously broadcasts warning,
watches, forecasts and non-weather related hazard information on
NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR). The average range of the
1000+ NWR transmitters is 40 miles, depending on topography. For the best
performing NWR receivers, NWS suggests you look at devices certified to
Public Alert™ standards.
These radios meet specific technical standards and come with many features
such as Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME), a battery backup, both
audio and visual alarms, selective programming for the types of hazards you
want to be warned for, and the ability to activate external alarm devices for
people with disabilities. Similar to a smoke detector, an NWR can wake you up
in the middle of the night to alert you of a dangerous situation.
