One that may save your whole family a lot of aggravation:
How about a Weather Radio?
NOAA’s radio system is an all-hazards system. It provides watches and warnings for other natural incidents including floods, tornadoes, oil spills, 911 telephone outages, terrorist and AMBER alerts, as well as post-event information. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency recommend that every home have a NOAA Weather Radio receiver as standard equipment for around-the-clock reports.
Prices vary, starting from around $30 for a no-frills version. However, experts say that weather radios that include support of the Specific Area Messaging Encoding (SAME) system are the best choices. This technology lets users pre-select the alerts that they want to receive based upon where they live, allowing residents to tailor their weather radio alerts to their specific area and thereby reduce irrelevant alerts.
According to a FEMA press release the WEATHER RADIOS ARE AN EXCELLENT IDEA FOR FATHER’S DAY.
