Weather radios equipped with a special alarm tone feature can
sound an alert and give you immediate information about a
life-threatening situation. During an emergency, National Weather
Service forecasters will interrupt routine weather radio programming
and send out the special tone that activates weather radios in the
listening area. The hearing- and visually impaired also can get
these warnings by connecting weather radios with alarm tones to
other kinds of attention-getting devices like strobe lights, pagers,
bed-shakers, personal computers and text printers.
