TRANSCRIPT: NOAA All Hazards Alert Radios.

Hello. My name is Mike Boos and I’m the Emergency Manager for Raymore, Missouri.

I’d like to talk to you about All Hazards Alert Radios.

Have you ever thought about how you would know if a tornado was coming your way in the middle of the night while your family is asleep?

Or even during the day — if you happen to be indoors when severe weather approaches, you won’t hear the outdoor sirens.

The answer is a NOAA All Hazards Alert Radio. These special radios provide continuous broadcasts of the latest weather and emergency information from the National Weather Service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

But you don’t have to listen to it all the time. You can program the radio to sound an alert only when severe weather or some other type of emergency threatens your county.

Through Project Community Alert, local emergency managers have partnered with Price Chopper grocery stores in the Greater Kansas City area to make these special All Hazards Alert Radios to you at cost — only $29.95.

These radios can save lives and prevent injuries. Thousands of people in the metro area have purchased alert radios since the Metropolitan Emergency Managers Committee began Project Community Alert a few years ago. Do you have yours?

Protect your family — get your All Hazards Alert Radio today.

For more information, call your city or county emergency manager.
