The radios alert listeners to extreme weather conditions along with amber alerts and other hazardous situations.

For the fourth year, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security along with local agencies is giving away weather radios to some of the state‘s neediest citizens.

8,500 radios will be given away through local police departments as part of an effort to help people who may not otherwise have the money to spend on something that could save lives.

The radios do more than just alert people to weather conditions like storm warnings and tornadoes. The radios will also convey amber alerts, and local emergencies like chemical spills and hazmat situations.
