Alert Seminole Notification System




Seminole County Division of Emergency Management promotes the use of weather alert radios in the community. Weather alert radios are a comprehensive, 24-hour source of weather forecasts, watches, warnings and other hazard information. A NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards transmitter broadcasts on one of seven VHF frequencies. The broadcasts cannot be heard on a simple AM/FM radio receiver.

Mark Trail Champions NOAA Weather Radio National Weather Service reception to a county depends on a reliable signal, which typically extends in about a 40 mile radius from the transmitter. Seminole County is serviced by two transmitters. These are Orlando (162.475mhz) and Daytona Beach (162.400mhz). If your radio does not receive a clear signal, change to the other transmitter for better reception.

All radios should be programmed for Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME). SAME allows your radio to eliminate all messages not meant for a specific County. Seminole County’s SAME code is 012117.

To learn more about weather radios or for specific questions about programming, please contact the Seminole County Division of Emergency Management at 407-665-5102.
