Grant will provide free weather radios to Clanton residents

Thanks to a federal grant, the City of Clanton is giving out free weather radios.

The radios will help protect the city's 4,000 residents and Clanton's fire chief says that alerts from the radios can help people to get to safety.

People in Clanton got a card in the mail if they are eligible. The card can be returned to the fire department for a radio.
