In response to devastating tornadoes in Alabama, the Tornado Recovery Action Council issued a report recommending telephone and digital alerting for Alabamians. Alabama technology company Baron Services is providing the SAF-T-Net system at no cost to Alabama residents.
Residents can receive alerts via phone, email or text messaging for up to four (4) user-defined locations. The system provides enhanced location-based storm alerts to recipients.
WAFF is doing its part to help spread the word about SAF-T-Net. You can learn more and sign up for the free service at:
