The "Smoke Alarm" for Severe Weather Stay Informed with NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards

  • NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) All Hazards is a public warning system that broadcasts forecasts, warnings, and emergency information 24 hours a day directly to the public.
  • Radio receivers can quietly monitor these broadcasts and will alert when important (life threatening) messages are issued for your area.
  • "All Hazards" messages include:
    Natural (e.g., tornado, floods, high winds, blizzards)
    Accidents (e.g., chemical release, train derailments, nuclear power emergencies)
    Terrorist attacks



Stay Informed with NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards


All schools in your community have weather radios to help safeguard your children. This program is sponsored by the Department of Education, Department of Commerce, and Department of Homeland Security. More information on the program can be found at:

  • Please ensure they are used. During an emergency, seconds count! These radios are a valuable alerting device, easy to use, and can also be used to check on every day weather, including wind chill information during the winter.
  • Place your radio in areas that are constantly monitored (e.g., school office, principalís office). Remember those occasions when the school is used for activities outside normal hours and make sure the radio can be monitored during those times.
  • If you have any questions about weather radios, contact your local National Weather Service office.
