Free weather alert radios available for residents throughout April
The Forsyth County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) will be providing opportunities for residents to obtain a free weather alert radio and emergency preparedness information during the month of April.
“The radios will come pre-programmed to alert residents of weather advisories in Forsyth County,” said EMA Deputy Director Chris Grimes. “We were able to obtain the radios through a grant and are hopeful that residents will utilize them in hazardous weather situations.”
The All Hazards NOAA Weather Radios and emergency preparedness information will be distributed on a first come, first-served basis to all county residents, by appointment only, during drive-thru events held at various Forsyth County Parks & Recreation facilities.
Appointments can be made for radio pickup on the following dates/locations:
Tuesday, April 13 – Central Park (2300 Keith Bridge Rd.)
Friday, April 16 – Old Atlanta Park (810 Nichols Rd.)
Friday, April 23 – Fowler Park (4110 Carolene Way)
Along with distributing the weather radios, Forsyth County EMA is also urging residents to take time to plan and prepare for disasters and emergency situations such as severe weather.
