Weather alerts save lives! It takes a lot of computer technology and manpower to make sure the service is up and running 24/7 so that alerts are sent out urgently to keep people safe. This is of course not a cheap task. Each year funding is needed to supply a year of subscriptions, maintaince, etc. to offer these free of charge to the public. No charge is ever made on any subscriber as this is a service we feel should never be charged to save a life, so we do fundraisers to cover yearly expenses. We ask for your help in order to keep this service free to the public. Thank you!
