... This is severe weather awareness week in Wyoming...

The week of April 20 to April 24 has been designated severe weather
awareness week in Wyoming. Today we will discuss making an
emergency plan for natural disasters and all hazards NOAA Weather
Radio.

... First step... ready

Before severe weather season... develop an emergency plan and
practice it regularly.

Here are a few questions to ask when developing your plan.

* What is your risk for a natural disaster? Do you live in a flood
prone area? Knowing your risk can help you develop a plan
tailored to your family.

* Where do you go in case of a natural disaster? Is it a
basement... such as during a tornado or to higher ground during
a flash flood?

* Do you have a designated meeting place for your family if you
get separated? During a natural disaster... phone service might
be disrupted... and getting in contact with loved ones might be
difficult.

* What would you do if basic services such as water... gas...
electricity... or telephones were cut off? Having an emergency
supply kit in your home and car is essential... and it is
recommended you keep enough supplies in your home to meet your
needs for at least 3 days. After a natural disaster it could
take awhile for emergency responders to reach your location.

* How will you be notified of a natural disaster? What about at
night?

Fema... the Red Cross... your local emergency management... and
the National Weather Service can help you develop your plan.

Here are a few websites with guidance in making your emergency
plan: fema: www.Ready.Gov nws:

... Second step... set

When severe weather is possible later in the day or a few days out...

* make sure your emergency plan and supply kit are up-to-date.

* Keep abreast of the latest weather conditions and keep an eye to
the sky especially if a watch is issued for your area.

... Third step... go

* when a warning is issued... activate your emergency plan
immediately.

One way to get prepared is to have an all hazards NOAA Weather
Radio receiver.

... All hazards NOAA Weather Radio...

All hazards NOAA Weather Radio is a nationwide network of radio
stations... broadcasting continuous weather information directly
from the nearest National Weather Service office. There are 22
NOAA Weather Radio stations serving Wyoming... broadcasting
official NWS warnings... watches... forecasts and other hazard
information 24 hours a day... 7 days a week. During severe
weather... such as during a tornado or flash flood event... the
normal broadcast of NOAA Weather Radio will be interrupted by a
tone alert... followed by critical life saving information. The
tone will activate all NOAA Weather Radio receivers in the area
which are equipped to receive the tone... even if the audio is
turned off. Like a smoke detector... a NOAA Weather Radio can wake
you in the middle of the night alerting you to a dangerous
situation. Periodically check your NOAA Weather Radio to make sure
it is in good working order. The NWS tests the NOAA Weather Radio
warning alarm system every Wednesday between 11 am and 1 PM unless
there is a threat of severe weather... then the test is postponed
until the next available good weather day. On Wednesday... the NWS
will be conducting a test Tornado Warning... at 1030 am MDT.

NOAA Weather Radio is an all hazards system. This allows local...
state and federal emergency management officials to request
messages to be broadcast during emergency situations. These
include child abduction emergencies... hazardous materials
warnings... evacuation immediate orders... and other civil
emergencies.

NOAA Weather Radio receivers can be purchased at many electronic
and internet stores. A list of the vendors is located on the web
at weather.Gov/NWR/nwrrcvr.Htm or contact the Cheyenne National
Weather Service office.
