Star Valley Receives New
Weather Warning System

The National Weather Service has recently installed a new NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) site to service Star Valley. The transmitter was installed at The Narrows between Thayne and Grover, and has been operational since October, 2002.

A dedication ceremony for the Star Valley NWR site will be held at the Lower Valley Energy building located at 236 North Washington in Afton at 1:00 p.m. MST Monday, December 16, 2002. The ceremony will be broadcast live over the Star Valley NWR. United States Senator Mike Enzi and United States Congresswoman Barbara Cubin have been invited to be the Keynote Speakers at the ceremony. The public is invited to attend. The new site was the result of congressional action taken by Wyoming Senators Enzi and Craig Thomas, and Congresswoman Cubin. The efforts of officials at KRSV Radio and Lower Valley Energy were instrumental in establishing the site.

"This transmitter will enable the National Weather Service to communicate important weather and community safety information to residents of Star Valley, day or night. A seven band NOAA Weather Radio, equipped with an automatic alarm, can help protect families and their property by providing warnings and other weather information 24 hours a day," said Joe Sullivan, Meteorologist In Charge of the Weather Forecast Office in Riverton, Wyoming.

To receive up-to-the-minute forecasts and warnings, residents of Star Valley can tune in NWR station WNG-569 at 162.425 MHz.
