SAF-T-NET

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.

Alerts include:

  • National Weather Service (NWS) tornado warnings
  • NWS severe thunderstorm warnings
  • NWS flash flood warnings
  • Twisting storm alerts (exclusive to SAF-T-Net)
  • Dangerous storm alerts
  • Custom messages containing alert or safety information from local participating emergency management officials

The free SAF-T-Net weather notifications can be received several ways:

  • Through the Alabama SAF-T-Net app, available for free at the app stores on iOS and Android devices
  • A text-capable mobile device
  • Email
  • Automated phone calls to landline phones
