Most weather apps available today just give you the forecast for a select city or cities. The ALERT FM App can possibly help save your life.

The ALERT FM App integrates the critically acclaimed iMap Weather Radio with the reliability of ALERT FM’s state and local citizen notification. Before, during, and after a critical event receive timely localized emergency information- everything from weather alerts to available shelter locations- delivered right to your mobile device.

ALERT FM is used by a rapidly growing number of state and local officials to notify their citizens about emergency situations. The ALERT FM App provides users with weather forecasts, current conditions, radar updated every 5 minutes, and advisories/ watches/ warnings for both your preset and current locations across the United States. Additionally, you can receive information from federal, state and local emergency officials such as storm precautions and evacuations, hazardous chemical spills, major accidents, Amber Alerts, and more.

The ALERT FM App is free to download. The emergency alerting and basic weather functionality is available for free and there are In-App Purchase options for upgraded weather functionality.

What you get for Free?

*Emergency information sent from federal and state sources for the jurisdiction that you registered for when you downloaded the app- are received on your phone through push notifications (alerts sent to your phone even when the app is closed) and appear under “Text Alerts” in the app.

*Over 100 types of weather advisories, watches, and warnings plus forecasts and radar updated every 5 minutes are available for up to 5 saved locations and your current location using your phone’s GPS.

*Weather advisories, watches, and warnings are available by opening the app and clicking on the badge next to the selected location (push notifications for weather are available for $9.99 - see below).

NOTE: Custom Alerts, found under SETTINGS, can only be selected for Push Notifications. This setting allows you to select what advisories, watches, or warnings that you want pushed to your phone. Although the alerts read "disabled" with the free features, you will receive all advisories, watches, and warnings for your saved and current locations as stated above.

Alert FM

Good app. Lots of warning in U.S. No alerts for Canadian cities. Instant support when needed.

dont use

it is just a big ad for a dlc add on just dont bother getting this app

New Orleans native

I downloaded the app for free, added a location for alerts (alerts were visible within the app), radar was beautiful, weather was accurate. Made an in-app purchase for voice notifications, push-notifications, and 3 locations (to monitor weather and emergencies for other loved ones). Went into settings to choose which alerts I wanted (there are many). At this point, the app was still cheaper than many alternative emergency apps. When we had a strong cold front the other night in South Louisiana, the app woke me up with a Tornado warning and voice (great for the visually impaired) for my area. Just like a weather radio, but better! Its only a few bucks vs. $29.99-$49.99 for a weather radio that may or may not work. Apparently my state also has the ability for emergency managers to publish non-weather related emergencies to this app. I am more than satisfied.

Great way to stay informed during a crisis

This app will be really handy during Hurricane season. The ability to get push alerts for any location is great when the power is out.

Tremendous alerting app

I love all of the features this app provides. I have found 0 glitches in this app. Not only is it useful for first responders like myself any average joe can use this app. It uses your current locations and will send push alerts for any natural disaster like flooding, fires, tornadoes you name it. I guess apps like weather bug are in the past this app sends me alerts and I am also able to view the weather via radar and satellite imagery ( which definitely helps for when I am preparing for my business trips. Again I found zero glitches. This will be not only my weather app but my main app for all major alerts.. A+++ Try it out yourself you will not be upset.

Stupid

You cant really do anything on the free app, you have to pay to get most of the alerts, I deleted it. Waste of space on my phone.
