Every home should have a weather radio. In fact, federal and state safety officials agree that weather radios are as important as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in keeping you safe.
You can count on StormTeam 16 to warn you about severe weather whenever necessary. But when you’re away from your TV, a desktop or hand-held weather radio can alert you when severe weather threatens your area.
StormTeam 16 teamed up with Midland Radio to provide weather radios that are easy to program for your needs. The radio packaging contains instructions. You just need to tune the radio to the clearest channel and program the counties you wish to monitor for alerts.
You can find a helpful handout containing the programming codes for your area by clicking on the banner at the top of this page or by clicking here. In case you need a little help programming your radio, StormTeam 16 Meteorologist David Harker put together a brief video to walk you through the steps. Click the video link to watch.
