Weather Radio Giveaway Program

Post Date:05/28/2019 11:53 AM

UPDATE 10:00AM Wednesday May 29: All the weather radios we had to give away have been called for. We are now adding names to a wait list so that if we receive more grant funding, we may be able to buy more radios to give away at some point in the future.

 

ORIGINAL MESSAGE (Tuesday May 28, 2019): Do you know someone who would benefit from this program?

The City of Nixa is giving away FREE weather radios to Nixa residents with special needs or Nixa residents who are 65 and older who do not currently have a weather radio, cannot afford to purchase their own weather radio, or do not currently use a smart phone app to alert them to severe weather.

This program is made possible by funding from the Nixa Community Foundation.

Radios are pre-programmed and already have batteries installed. Stop by Nixa City Hall during normal business hours to request a weather radio. Our business hours are 8:30am-4:30pm Mondays through Fridays except designated holidays. You may call us at 725-3785 with any questions about this program.

Radios will be given on a first come, first serve basis until supplies run out. We ask that recipients of the radios provide their address so that we can ensure these radios are going to residents inside Nixa city limits. We also ask that recipients provide contact information so that we may survey the recipients of the radios regarding their use of the radios in order to determine the success of this program.
