The Tornado Warning Alert Device Subsidy Program
The City of Alamo Heights would like to remind its citizens about tornado safety and some important tips for success. Tornadoes can happen anytime and can bring an excess of 200 MPH winds, creating destruction in their wake. There are several ways to be notified of tornadic conditions in your area. Wireless emergency alerts are automatically generated to all compatible cell phones in the area that is threatened. If you receive AMBER alerts, you should receive the wireless emergency alerts, but please check to see if your device is compatible by referencing the following link:
You can also obtain emergency alert notifications from other devices that can alert you of tornadic conditions in your area. These devices include weather band radios as well as “tornado specific” alert devices. The following links may be helpful in selecting a severe weather/tornado alert device
In our continuing support of emergency preparedness, the City of Alamo Heights has adopted a The Tornado Warning Alert Device Subsidy Program, available to residents of Alamo Heights. With the purchase of an approved audible tornado warning device, proof of purchase receipt, completion of a brief “City of Alamo Heights Tornado Warning Alert Device Subsidy Application”, home owners can receive up to a fifty dollar subsidy from the City. The program runs until September 01, 2021, and will be re-evaluated prior to October 1,2021. Please select the link below to see all the details of the program, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
The City of Alamo Heights also encourages all residents to review the the “Tornado Preparedness” public service information posted on the Fire Department website, the City website and added to the February 2021 City Newsletter.
