How to Program your Weather Radio
Mooresville Fire & Rescue (MFR) offers free NOAA Weather Radios to provide early warning notification during emergencies to Town of Mooresville businesses, churches, offices, or other facilities where at least 50 or more people congregate at one time. Weather Radios are also available for citizens with a disability that may limit their timely response to an emergency.
Weather radios are equipped with a special tone feature to sound an alert and provide immediate information about potentially life-threatening situations. During an emergency, the National Weather Service interrupts routine weather radio programming and sends a special tone that activates weather radios in the warning area.
To receive a weather radio, contact Assistant Fire Chief Shane LaCount at 704-664-1338 or firstname.lastname@example.org and complete a request form. MFR requests that recipients sign a form agreeing to return the free weather radio when it is no longer needed or used.
