WAND TV Chief Meteorologist JC Fultz will be at the Walgreens in Effingham from 3:30pm-6:30pm on Thursday. Fultz will be programming NOAA Weather Radios. Anyone with a new or used weather radio is welcome to bring it by the store to make sure it is programmed correctly and is fully operational. There is no cost to have a radio programmed. Weather radios can also be purchased at the event.
Along with weather warnings, the radios broadcast warnings and post-event information for all types of hazards, including natural, environmental and public safety hazards, such as earthquakes, chemical spills and AMBER alerts.
