Since many of our readers are in Utah and specifically in Cache County, I wanted to post this information for you.
"In the event of a disaster, there's a new radio station in Cache County that can provide residents with important emergency information. WQKP, 1610 AM, was established with funds from a 2008 Federal Homeland Security grant to broadcast emergency public information in a disaster. Cache County is currently broadcasting Nation Weather Service information on this station, but future programming will also include educational emergency preparedness information. Broadcast will be made from this channel to keep residents updated around the clock during emergencies."
If you are looking for something similar in your area, I'm sure that will be available to you as well.
