SAF-T-NET Mobile Weather Alert
Alert system notifies users of storms via mobile devices
SAF-T-Net® (Specific Alerting for Threats) is your personal weather siren, a fully automatic and patented weather alerting system that uses text messages, email or phone calls to warn you ahead of the storm – only when you’re affected. All you have to do is sign up.
The service is offered at no cost in Alabama, and residents can enroll through a simple form on Saf-T-Net. To make enrollment easier for its members, WEC has joined SAF-T-Net’s network of media partners. Now members can simply click to visit SAF-T-Net and instantly reach the form to enroll in the weather alert program.
Alabama SAF-T-Net sends you the following alerts for up to 4 locations in Alabama, including 1 smart phone*:
- National Weather Service storm-based warnings for Tornadoes, Severe Thunderstorms and Flash Floods
- Patented Baron location-specific alerts using the same nationally recognized technology as VIPIR, and provided with Baron Tornado Index® ratings for tornado potential
- Custom messages from local participating Emergency Management officials
- Breaking weather updates from WTVY meteorologists
*Mobile GPS location alerting now available with Blackberry. iPhone and Android support coming soon. Your mobile location is only alerted within the vicinity of the state of Alabama.
You get radar time-lapse images of approaching weather, too. There is no subscription cost for Alabama SAF-T-Net (messaging and data rates apply; message frequency varies by profile). It’s easy, it’s accurate, and it can provide advance notice of potentially life-threatening weather. Sign up today.
