Local Source: NOAA weather radio operates 24 hours a day and is a reliable source of timely weather information such as severe weather, Tornado Watches and Tornado Warnings. The advanced alerts provided by this service can be a life saver.
Many weather radios currently on the market have Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) capability allowing users to choose the counties for which they want to receive weather watches and warnings. However, programming these radios can be confusing; Dubois County Emergency Management would like to help.

Please bring the manual that came with your radio and batteries. For more information, please contact the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency at (812) 482-2202
