NOAA Weather Radios

As we have been informing the community, the Waldo Canyon Fire burn area is at heightened risk for flash-flooding. NOAA Weather Radios are the most direct way of receiving watches and warnings, and are recommended for every home, school, and business by FEMA, the National Weather Service, and the American Red Cross. Please consider purchasing one this weekend.

Several brands of weather radios are available at Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Kroger, Target, Lowe's, ACE Hardware, and other electronic and hardware or sporting goods retailers.

The most common price range is around $50, although some brands sell for as low as $15 or as high as $100.

Look for radios with a "Public Alert" certification printed on the box. Public Alert-certified radios feature:

  • Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME)
  • Wall plug PLUS battery back-up
  • Multiple audible and visual alert features
  • Signal sensitivity
