The Midland Weather Alert Radio can be used by itself for those needing to be contacted by a loud siren only. The weather radio has a special receiver that tunes to NOAA's 24/7 National Weather Service broadcast. Additional accessories can be added to build your own system (more than one accessory connection requires the Dual Connector/Splitter SC-SPLITTER) or buy a prepackaged system.
The S.A.M.E. Digital Weather/Hazard alert feature provides you with constant monitoring of your local NWS (National Weather Service) broadcast. S.A.M.E. localized reception allows you to hear only messages for the area(s) concerning you. Emergency weather bulletins include alerts about: tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, ice/snow storms and other severe weather; and Emergency broadcasts might include: Amber alerts, hazardous explosions, fires, chemical spill and other civil emergencies.
Please contact NOAA for reception channels in your area.
