EMA, IESMA Sponsor Weather Alert Contest for Severe Weather Preparedness Week

One key to surviving disasters is getting timely warnings. NOAA all-hazards weather alert radios are a good way to receive potentially life-saving notices of approaching severe weather and other hazards 24 hours a day.

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and the Illinois Emergency Services Management Association (IESMA) are sponsoring a contest to raise awareness of weather alert radios. The contest runs from March 1 – March 31 and is open to all Illinois residents. 

To participate, click on the link below, read the narrative and take a short quiz. Then complete the entry form and click “submit.” A total of 100 NOAA weather alert radios will be awarded.
