Emergency Alert, Weather Alert, Storm Tracker Appliances
NOAA Weather Radio alert system warns of severe weather emergencies, such as
tornados, hurricanes, floods, and blizzards, as well as natural disasters such
as earthquakes, wild fires, and avalanches.
Compact and versatile, these essential emergency tools are also ideal for everyday
recreational activities like camping, boating, going to the beach, or attending
sporting events. Stormtracker models vary with a combination of TV, AM/FM radio,
lantern/flashlight, cell-phone charger, and hand-crank rechargeable backup power.
The Weather Channel® Stormtracker™ Series Weather Alert
Radio’s by Vector help keep informed with public broadcasts of all-hazard
emergency alerts through The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) Weather Radio. By leaving the Stormtracker in alert/lock mode 24/7,
when an all-hazard emergency or weather alert is broadcast by NOAA, the
Stormtracker sounds an audible alert to notify you a message is pending.
Move the switch or depress a button, (depending on the model) to hear
the NOAA report.
The Stormtracker units are always ready to use. The main power
is a dry cell or rechargeable battery, 12 volt DC power or 120 volt AC
power. The rechargeable, hand-crank battery is a secondary power source
for emergency use when the battery, 12 volt DC power or 120 volts AC are
not available. When the power goes out for a long period of time and all
battery sources have been depleted, a built-in hand-crank provides back-up
power for radio, LED area light and cell phone charging functions.
