SOUTH BEND — The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency is coordinating with the Washington Emergency Management Division to host a NOAA Weather Radio program on Thursday, March 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Grays Harbor College Riverview Education Center, 600 Washington Ave. in Raymond.
The program is designed to educate the public on the warnings and alerts that may be issued from the National Weather Service.

Participants may be eligible to receive a NOAA weather radio at no cost. All Pacific County residents are welcome to attend this training; however, radios are limited to the first 50 residents who meet the specified income levels. Programming assistance will be provided.
