The North Central Montana EAS Local Area Emergency Communications Committee and the Broadcast Media have developed a plan to disseminate emergency information and warnings to the general public at the request of local, state and federal officials. The plan may be activated on a day to day basis in response to such emergencies as flooding, tornadoes, hazardous materials incidents and civil emergencies.
KMON AM Radio has been designated as the primary source for dissemination of emergency public information. Once KMON receives the information, it is sent to other radio stations in the listening area.
You may tune to any of the stations listed below for emergency public information.
*Operational 24 hours a day
NOAA Weather Radio
NOAA Weather radio provides continuous broadcasts of the latest weather information directly from the National Weather Service offices. Broadcasts are tailored to the weather information needs of those within the listening area.
NOAA Weather Radio station WWG-84 provides the Rocky Mountain Front from Conrad to Cutbank with the latest forecasts and information 24 hours a day. WWG - 84 operates on a frequency of 162.500 Mhz from a transmitter located north of Conrad.
Weather messages are repeated every five to seven minutes, and are routinely revised every one to three hours, or more frequently, as needed. The routine broadcast includes:
Warnings, watches and advisories for conditions such as tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, high winds, floods and heavy snow are broadcast as necessary and may pre-empt regular programming.
NOAA Weather Radio has a unique feature which the National Weather Service uses in case of threatening severe weather, called the warning alarm. When warnings of threatening severe weather are issued, the warning alarm is activated directly from the broadcast facility. Weather radios receivers equipped with the alarm feature sound an alarm to alert you to the warning message. The warning alarm for WWG - 84 is activated for the following weather watches and warnings:
Tests of the NOAA Weather Radio Warning Alarm are conducted every Wednesday around noon, unless severe weather is threatening.
