The KAKE First Alert weather team is always tracking, alerting & protecting. But for those times you don’t have TV or the Internet, a NOAA Weather Radio is one extra measure of safety for you and your family.

KAKE First Alert Weather is teaming up with Midland Radio to offer all-hazards weather radios at a reduced price for our viewers. The Midland WR 120 is a state-of-the-art digital alert radio that requires little set up and is easy to use. It's available at Dillons, Walgreens & Orschelns stores throughout the KAKEland viewing area.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Midland and these fine retailers to raise the awareness of this valuable tool available to our audience,” said Jay Prater, KAKE First Alert Weather Managing Meteorologist.

“We’re always going to be there for our viewers, tracking the storms as they hit Kansas, but there’s nothing like having an alarm programmed for your own county,” said Prater. “When tornadoes threaten, it gives a voice, siren or tone alert. Even in the middle of the night you’ll know when to take cover and get your family out of harm’s way,” he continued.

All Weather Radio Programming events run from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
