SAF-T-NET Free Mobile Weather Alert App: Get on-the-spot notice of severe weather on your smartphone
When bad weather is on its way, the Alabama 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. Wiregrass Electric Cooperative has joined SAF-T-Net’s network of media partners to keep our members a few steps ahead of the storm.
SAF-T-Net is offered at no cost in Alabama, and residents can enroll by simply downloading the app from the App Store. SAF-T-Net is available for iPhones and Androids.
