Oakmont, PA - Sima Products Corporation proudly introduces its newest First Alert® brand Public Alert NOAA weather radio - Model WX -200. The WX -200 is a full featured weather radio that exceeds the CEA -2009A standard for Public Alert warning devices.

According to Ilana Diamond, CEO of Sima Products Corporation, which licenses the First Alert® brand name for emergency radios, the WX -200 is especially suited for use by handicapped, elderly and non -English speaking populations
"Our customers want feature sets that maximize the total warning effectiveness of the product," said Diamond. "This is where the WX -200 excels. The WX -200 has all of the rear panel connections to support accessories such as pillow shakers and strobe lights for use by hearing and vision -impaired people."
The unit provides visual and vibrating alarms and simple text readouts. Three warning lights indicate the level of alert (Statement, Watch, or Warning) and an LCD readout indicates specific warning such as 'Tornado Warning' or 'Thunderstorm Warning'.
"We made setup of this radio extremely user -friendly. Simply select your state and county from the menu and the radio does the rest. Diamond continued. "Also, all of the menus and messages can appear in either English or Spanish. All in all, there is no Public alert radio on the market that delivers as many features and maximum protection for your family at an affordable price point as the WX -200."
Held to rigorous testing standards, this unit automatically responds to 79 warning messages for civil and natural disasters on 7 weatherband channels by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Broadcasts of tornado warnings, flood warnings, AMBER Alerts for child abductions, chemical spill messages and many other notifications make NOAA Weather Radio an essential item for every home, business and public area. NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. NOAA Weather Radio is provided as a free, public service by the government.
