This document describes the importance of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Weather Radios (NWR) for the deaf or hard of hearing. NWR offers non-verbal information imbedded in its broadcasts to provide timely, critical warnings of life threatening events to the deaf and hard of hearing. Some receivers are equipped with special output connectors that activate alerting devices such as vibrators, bed shakers, pillow vibrators, strobe lights and other alerting systems.
