KCRG-TV9 First Alert Storm Team Weather Radio Programming
Join the KCRG-TV9 First Alert Storm Team to help stay safe this severe weather season!
Having multiple ways to get severe weather information is important. It could mean the difference between being caught by surprise or giving you time to get to your safe place. This is especially critical at night as a weather alert radio will sound the alarm to wake you up. Weather Alert Radios also have a battery backup, should your power go off the radio will still come on.
Back again for 2023, the KCRG-TV9 First Alert Storm Team will be programming weather radios! Thanks to a partnership with Hy-Vee, radios will be available for purchase at this year’s programming events. If you’d like to order a radio ahead of the programming events, we suggest Midland’s WR120 Weather Alert Radio which can be ordered from this website.
