Emergency Alert System (EAS)
The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a national public warning system that requires TV and radio broadcasters, cable television systems, wireless cable systems, satellite digital audio radio service (SDARS) providers, direct broadcast satellite (DBS) service providers and wireline video service providers to offer to the President the communications capability to address the American public during a national emergency. The system also may be used by state and local authorities to deliver important emergency information such as AMBER (missing children) alerts and emergency weather information targeted to a specific area.

NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards 
The National Weather Service (NWS) continuously broadcasts warning, watches, forecasts and non-weather related hazard information from a nearby National Weather Service office to specially configured NOAA weather radio receivers. Learn more about the  National Weather Radio and consider purchasing a NOAA weather radio receiver.
