Northwest RC&D Council Project: 2023 Regional Weather Radio Project

In preparation for being severe weather aware, the Northwest RC&D Council recently provided a $30,000 grant to fund the purchase of 1,150 Midland Weather Radios to be distributed throughout Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale, Marion, and Winston counties. Each county received 230 programmed radios. These radios provide a direct means of receiving emergency weather information.

Each county scheduled a distribution site which allowed the weather radios to be picked up by individuals on a first come first serve basis. Northwest Resource Conservation and Development Council would like to extend special thanks to our EMA partners in our five counties and especially to our State Senators and Representatives for their continued support of RC&D projects to make northwest Alabama a better place to live, work, and play.

The mission of The Northwest Alabama Resource Conservation and Development Council is to implement and promote impact driven projects, and activities designed to promote the sustainability and productivity of the abundant, natural and human resources of our five-county, target area while improving the quality of life within the community.
