Weather alert radios are a key tool for alerting people to approaching danger, day or night, and it is suggested every home have one. 
 
A statewide contest, "Weather Alert Radios Save Lives" contest is available online in which participants will complete an online quiz for a chance to win a weather radio. The contest is available on the Ready Illinois website at www.ReadyIllinois.gov and also at www.iesma.org. The contest ends March 31 and winners will be announded in April.
