Persons indoors should not depend on Outdoor Warning Sirens as their primary way of being warned.There are many other ways to receive an emergency alert. One way is with a NOAA Weather Radio.  NOAA Weather Radios are inexpensive and can be programmed to receive watches and warnings for one or more counties. They would make a wonderful gift. Another way is by using the TuscALERT notification system, which will send a message to the user’s phone if their address is included in an issued watch or warning. The system is customizable by user. Sign up for TuscALERT by visiting www.TuscAlert.com.This media release was provided by Tuscaloosa County EMA.last_img
