NOAA Weather Radio and All Hazards Warning

A battery powerd radio capable of receiving weather and other official hazard alerts is a major step toward being prepared for most hazards.  A radio that can accept the S.A.M.E coding can provide the same warning while being used to receive other radio broadcasts.  For information on the S.A.M.E. coding and how S.A.M.E. works go to the following link: S.A.M.E.

In the area of Island County, the NOAA weather radio broadcasts are best received on 162.425 MHZ , WWG-24.
