Decatur Fire & Rescue offers weather radios

MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Decatur Fire & Rescue has several NOAA weather radios to give away to anyone who needs them – but there are only 100 available!

Lt. Brandon Sivley says the x-rays were donated by the Morgan County Emergency Management Agency, Ascend and the local emergency planning committee.

Sivley says the timing couldn’t be better with bad weather season already in full swing. He says the departments are happy to put the radios in the hands of those who may not have access to severe weather alerts.

Residents of Morgan County can pick up a NOAA Weather Radio at any of the following locations:

  • Administrative Office – 4119 Old Hwy 31 SW, Decatur, AL
