Once you have registered with your local Emergency Network System by using SafetyInformed’s free registration system you will be notified of any local emergencies affecting your area. But in addition to that it’s the wise household that keeps itself fully informed by monitoring other warning systems like those provided by the Emergency Alert System.
EAS is a national public warning system that requires broadcasters, cable television systems, wireless cable systems, and satellite radio and television broadcasters to provide the communications capability to the President to address the American public during a national emergency. The system is also used by state and local authorities to deliver important emergency information, such as AMBER alerts and weather information targeted to specific areas.
The federal government, through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), provides several emergency services that you can access, like the National Weather Service,. the National Hurricane Service, the Ocean Prediction Center, Marine Forecasts and Aviation Weather. They all provide access to information directly related to your location. You can access these services on the Internet or, as in the case of sudden violent weather, you can monitor the National Weather Service. And the the best way to do that is with a weather radio. These inexpensive radios are readily available and will automatically activate with a voice message from the National Weather Service, day or night, to inform you of severe conditions in your area. Often times you will receive critical information at the same time it is received by your local Emergency Network System.
