Ted Bombagetti

Starke County Emergency Management Agency Director Ted Bombagetti has about 20 all-hazards alert radios that are available to residents facing economic hardships, including residents in mobile homes, to help receive severe weather updates.

The radios were distributed by the Indiana Department of Homeland Security to local emergency management agencies throughout the state thanks to a federal grant.

In addition to hearing alerts live on WKVI, the all-hazards alert radios provide more than 60 emergency alerts about coming thunderstorms, floods, tornadoes, and other predicted dangerous weather conditions.

To see if you are eligible to receive a free radio, call Starke County Emergency Management Director Ted Bombagetti at (574) 772-9182.
