Flood Plan Components

Get a NOAA Radio

Get and use a radio from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A NOAA radio is a special device that should be plugged in at the homes of your facility’s first responders. The radio gives advanced warnings for floods and storms. It is silent except when a flood or tornado warning sets off an alarm. NOAA radios are especially useful for receiving warnings about severe weather that might lead to flash flooding. Remember, each area of the country has its own radio setting.
