Weather Radio Wednesdays are Back!

Posted by Meteorologist Robb Ellis - bio | email | facebook

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Our Weather Radio Wednesday drive was so successful in July, we're bringing it back! This time we're hitting new locations!

WECT and the First Alert Weather Team have joined forces again with Walgreens and Midland Weather Radio to bring you Weather Radio Wednesdays!

Each Wednesday through September 22, the First Alert Weather Team will be at a different Walgreens location from 4:00 p.m.  to 7:00 p.m., providing a valuable service to the community, programming your weather radio.

Every home and business should have a weather radio. While most radios provide programmable options for your specific county, the programming can be difficult.

So let the First Alert Weather Team program your radio for free! Bring ANY weather radio to our Wednesday location and we will program it for you.

Don't have a weather radio? Pick one up while you are there at Walgreens for $29.99, and have it programmed for free by us!

Also, don't forget to meet the First Alert Meteorologists, and pick up a Hurricane Survival Guide while supplies last.

If you can't make it to this Weather Radio Wednesday, try one of our future dates.
