A free, site-specific weather alerting system is now available to Alabama residents. Huntsville-based Baron Servcices, Inc., unveiled its “Alabama SAF-T-Net®” program last week.

Alabama SAF-T-Net® (Specific Alerting for Threats) is billed as a “personal weather siren.” It is a fully automatic and patented weather alerting system that uses text messages, email or phone calls to warn subscribers ahead of the storm–only when the subscriber is affected.

More information, including the link to sign up is available [HERE]. 

SAF-T-Net features

Alabama SAF-T-Net sends you the following alerts for up to 4 locations in Alabama, including 1 smart phone*:

  • National Weather Service storm-based warnings for Tornadoes, Severe Thunderstorms and Flash Floods

  • Patented Baron location-specific alerts using the same nationally recognized technology as VIPIR, and provided with Baron Tornado Index® ratings for tornado potential

  • Custom messages from local participating Emergency Management officials

  • Breaking weather updates from ABC 3340 meteorologists
