"NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards" Radios, or NOAA Public Alert radios as they are sometimes called, are being distributed to public schools across the nation. This public safety project is a joint effort between the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Education, and NOAA’s National Weather Service.
Radios are being sent directly to the schools along with programming instructions. If local public schools in eastern Iowa, western Illinois, or extreme northeast Missouri need help programing their radios, they may contact the NWS office in the Quad Cities at 563-386-3976 or their local Emergency Manager.
