What kind of alert system do you use in your house? Television? Radio? Consider buying an All-Hazards Alert Radio that will give an alert sound inside your home whenever anything potentially dangerous is happening around you. You can buy these radios at local retailers such as Wal-mart, Radio Shack or Best Buy, or via the Internet.
