Weather Radios

Weather radios are a great tool to have, especially if you live in rural areas without civil alert sirens. There are many types to choose from, many have alert functions that will sound an alarm when watchse and/or warnings are issued by the National Weather Service. If you only wish to receive alerts for certain counties, there are weather radios in production that have Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) functionality. If you have one of these radios and need the county (also called FIPS) codes, please consult the list below. For more information on weather radios, visit NOAA's NWR Consumer Information page.
