With the recent rounds of severe weather and tornadoes in South Central Kentucky, it's more important than ever for each household to have at least one programmable weather radio.
Everyone should have a weather radio! That's why WBKO has partnered with Houchens Industries and Midland Radio Corporation to offer these potentially life-saving devices at a special price of just $29.95...that's $20 or more off the list price! Midland's WR-100 All-hazards Alert Weather Radio is the number one selling weather alert radio in America and has a proven track record of reliability and ease of use.
As South Central Kentuckians can attest to, severe weather can strike our area any time, any place and at any season of the year. That's why it is prudent for everyone to have more than one reliable source of receiving weather bulletins and critical emergency notification. The Midland WR-100 radios not only warn you about impending severe weather watches and warnings, but over 60 emergency alerts that will notify you of other dangers in your area... such as AMBER Alerts...evacuations...chemical spills...Homeland Security messages...fire warnings and local area emergencies.
Your Midland WR-100 weather radio comes with color coded alert lights, emergency battery backup, one-touch local weather 24-hours a day through NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts, alarm clock with snooze and a powerful alert tone that will grab your attention any time of the day or night should danger be on the horizon. In addition, your weather radio is easy to setup and program specific to your county! No more listening to alert tones sounding for counties outside your area. When you program your Midland WR-100 radio for the specific county you live in, you'll have the satisfaction knowing that if an alert is issued for area, you will be notified. The radio looks for a special FIPS code to sound the alarm...and every county in the U.S. has one.
