    • NOAA All-Hazards Radios Formally Known as Weather Radios
        • Public Alert Radios monitor a nationwide network of government radio towers broadcasting weather warnings, weather watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day!
        • Public alert introduced in 2004 have expanded the traditional emergency alert system in the U.S. to now include civil emergency messages such as terrorist attacks, problems at nuclear plants, industrial fires, chemical spills, biological hazards and Amber alerts.
        • This radio also provides traditional weather alert warnings for hurricanes, tornadoes, storm warnings, earthquakes and many more weather-related events.
    • NOAA All-Hazards Radios Formally Known as Weather Radios
        • Most feature an AM/FM clock radio and atomic time that automatically updates itself daily, this state-of-the-art weather radios includes more than 80 built-in warning messages, a scrolling LCD text display and a loud user-selectable alert siren of either 80 or 90 decibels!
        • Most have telescoping antenna, back lighting for easy night viewing and accurate digital tuning for all seven National Weather Radio channels. It features SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding) technology, allowing you to filter out distant alerts and only monitor local county alerts instead.
    • Emergency Alert System (EAS)
      • The system is tested weekly and once a month called a Required Monthly Test (RMT). All broadcast and cable systems in the Local Area are required to have a special EAS de-coder (Encoder/Decoder) and monitor WKFR through their decoder. When an RMT is received, they must re-broadcast (Relay) it on their respective station or cable system encoder/decoder.
      • Throughout the state EAS systems are to connected to the LP station’s encoder/decoder via phone line with their own Encoder/Decoder. By installing an encoder/decoder at our EOC, we can assemble and create our own EAS message and call the LP station’s Encoder/Decoder via a secure modem and send our message over-the-air without human intervention on the broadcaster’s end. The LP broadcaster’s Encoder/Decoder will automatically monitor the secure phone line and any EAS message received from a secured line will be automatically relayed (broadcast).

      • THE SAFEST PLACE TO BE DURING A TORNADO IS IN A BASEMENT. GET UNDER A WORKBENCH OR OTHER PIECE OF STURDY FURNITURE.
      • IF NO BASEMENT IS AVAILABLE...SEEK SHELTER ON THE LOWEST FLOOR OF THE BUILDING IN AN INTERIOR HALLWAY OR ROOM SUCH AS A CLOSET. USE BLANKETS OR PILLOWS TO COVER YOUR BODY AND ALWAYS STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS.
      • IF IN MOBILE HOMES OR VEHICLES...EVACUATE THEM AND GET INSIDE A SUBSTANTIAL SHELTER.
      • IF NO SHELTER IS AVAILABLE...LIE FLAT IN THE NEAREST DITCH OR OTHER LOW SPOT AND COVER YOUR HEAD WITH YOUR HANDS.
