Alabama residents can sign up for a new, free system that will send severe weather alerts through email, phone calls and text messaging.
The system was introduced Wednesday in Huntsville by Gov. Robert Bentley and other leaders. It was developed by Baron Services Inc., an Alabama-based company that works with the National Weather Service system to distribute warning information.
Called Alabama SAF-T-Net, the service is available to residents statewide at no cost. It allows people to register as many as four locations for which they would like to receive weather warnings via email, text, or a phone call.
Bentley says the service will allow people to receive customized weather warnings for a specific area.
Anyone interested in signing up can visit www.alabamasaftnet.com.
