Every home should have a weather radio, since you’re not always watching TV, and the weather radio will alert you when severe weather is occurring in your area.
The radios are pretty easy to program. Instructions are included in the box. You will just need to tune it to the channel that comes in the best, and then program in the counties you want to be warned for. Those county codes are listed here.

Midland Radio, the manufacturer of these radios, also has a training video on their website. To watch that video, click here.
