BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Do you own a NOAA weather radio? If so, you want to make sure it’s correctly programmed ahead of potential severe weather.

To program your weather radio, you will need your county’s SAME code and the frequency for the transmitter you’re closest to. You can find that information here on the NWS website.
