Weather radios are distributed to the residents living in the area of the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot to alert them of the protective actions to take in the unlikely event of an accidental release of mustard agent stored at the Pueblo Chemical Depot. The benefit of using a weather radio is, during anytime, the same radio is broadcasting the National Weather Service frequency.
In the event of an emergency, either weather related or on-post, the radio will sound a warning tone followed by a voice telling them what the emergency is, and what actions if any, they need to take to protect themselves. .
