NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office. The NOAA Weather Radio transmitter WWH34 located near Walton, NY on the frequency 162.425 was placed Out of Service due to a failure of a transmitter component. In conjunction with Federal, State, and Local Emergency Managers and other public officials, NWR also broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards – including natural (such as earthquakes or avalanches), environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills), and public safety (such as AMBER alerts or 911 Telephone outages). With 211 of these emergency broadcast channel radio in a single 24-hour yummy list when it comes to a scrumptious and trucks on the road - due. Working with the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Emergency Alert System , NWR is an "All Hazards" radio network, making it your single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information. Tests and public responses to the relocation of the NOAA Weather Radio transmitter that serves the New York City metropolitan area (KWO35 on the frequency 162.550) have generally been positive even though we are running at a lower power on a temporary antenna.

Information Station Specialists is the best known source of traveler's information stations, highway advisory radio, advisory signs and services needed to reach motorists. In the event of an emergency (especially a nuclear one) TV and FM radio would stop broadcasting. The settings on the radio will NOT be affected by this, as the SAME county code, and all other information is stored on a flash memory chip.But you WILL need to re-set the clock.
NWR broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Radio stations and networks could break into their regularly scheduled programming in case of an emergency before 1951. Though it’s never been used, thankfully, in theory, the President should be able to speak to all citizens through every possible medium (including things like Direct TV) within 10 minutes of an emergency.

There are more than 80 different categories of emergency warnings, including your standard tornado warnings but also things like the AMBER Alert System for child abduction emergencies. The codeword "hatefulness" was sent through the entire system, ordering stations to cease regular programming and broadcast the alert of a national emergency.
State or local authorities, the National Weather Service, or even the broadcaster also have access to this system for lesser emergencies.
