As the hurricane season approaches its end, federal agencies will begin to evaluate their response to the storms. One effective measure is assuring that the public has access to up-to-date information about weather emergencies. The Commerce Department's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration provides continuous emergency updates via its Weather and All-Hazards Radio Network. NOAA has enlisted the help of comic-strip character Mark Trail to assure that as many people as possible have access to the special radios needed to receive the network. 'NOAA weather radios should be as common in homes and public places as smoke detectors,' Trail says online above a drawing of him holding a radio. Nature conservationist Trail, title character of the syndicated comic strip, is the official NOAA Weather Radio spokesman.
