NOTICE: For information on Boone County’s Emergency Management Response to COVID-19

NOAA All Hazard Weather Radios

The fastest, most accurate and reliable means of receiving severe weather information is through a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Weather Radio with a “tone alert” feature and battery backup. Boone County Emergency Management recommends the purchase of a NOAA weather radio to warn you of severe weather, day or night, when you are inside your home.    NOAA Weather radio is operated directly from the National Weather Service office in Indianapolis, Indiana which provides coverage for Boone County.  The weather radio “tone alert” is activated when weather watches and warnings are issued.  Purchasing a NOAA weather radio with the Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) feature, allows for the radio to be programmed for specific areas so you do not receive alerts from areas far away.  List of Indiana SAME codes can be found at this link

If you are unable to purchase a weather radio please contact the Boone County EMA during normal business hours to schedule a time to pick up a weather radio.
