Emergency Log

When an emergency effects the Sedgwick County area such as severe weather, flooding, and other disasters, Emergency Management will have spotters and units in the field reporting the latest information and developments to the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Information reported by official spotters will be posted to the Emergency Log.

NOAA Weather Alert Radio

NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Working with the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Emergency Alert System , NWR is an "All Hazards" radio network, making it your single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information. In conjunction with Federal, State, and Local Emergency Managers and other public officials, NWR also broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards – including natural (such as earthquakes or avalanches), environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills), and public safety (such as AMBER alerts or 911 Telephone outages).

NOAA Weather Radios equipped with an audio alert tone kept in your bedroom will allow you to be awaken at night when severe weather threatens your area.

Local Television and Radio Stations
