Alabama residents receive free emergency radios
Emergency Management Alert, January 6, 2009
As part of a program to organize better lines of communication during a disaster, residents in six counties in Alabama are now eligible to receive free emergency alert radios. The goal is to place roughly 125,000 radios in homes, businesses, churches, schools, and agencies in the region.
This month, eligible residents will receive a brochure in the mail, with instructions to return the participation form in order to receive the radio, according to Fox News. The “Community Safety Program” was organized between county emergency management agencies in Calhoun, Clay, Cleburne, Etowah, St. Clair, and Talladega and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, making it the largest project of this kind in the country.
The radios will deliver information about threatening weather, hazardous materials accidents, evacuations, and even America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response (AMBER) alerts. The program was made possible by a multi-million dollar federal grant, which was awarded because of the chemical stockpile and incineration program in Anniston, AL.
