Weather Alert Radio Saves Lives
Severe weather can often strike quickly, even during the very early morning hours. An alarm from a weather alert radio can mean the difference between life and death because every minute counts. Pinellas County Emergency Management staff strongly urges residents to buy a weather alert radio. Weather alert radios can be found at many retailers, in catalogs and online.
