NOAA All Hazard Radios are important because they will alert you when impending weather is coming. While having weather apps on your phone is good, a weather radio will alert you before your phone does. The alert received on your radio is coming directly from NOAA and the National Weather service, the alerts received could potentially save you and your family in the time of disaster. Be sure to put it in a place that it can be heard, and change the batteries with your check your smoke detectors. NOAA All Hazards Radios can be found at most of your local retail stores, or purchased online.
