Alabama SAF-T-Net is a highly personalized weather alert app for smartphones, free to Alabama residents. Backed by patented technology from Baron Services, one of the nation’s leading weather technology companies, Alabama SAF-T-Net’s strength is in its geo-specific notification technology. App users can customize up to four frequently traveled locations (such as home, work, or child’s school, for example) and will only receive severe weather information when such is applicable to their specified locations. The service is available to all Alabamians at no cost.
“This is a very important way that people can be warned of impending severe weather,” says Governor Robert Bentley.
