Emergencies & Inclement Weather Alerts

Emergency Alert System
During a major emergency, WTCM 103.5 FM and 580 AM are the designated emergency alert system representatives for all of northwest Michigan including all of Grand Traverse County and Traverse City.

If there is a major emergency or a local state of emergency is declared, important information will be provided by tuning radios to 103.5 FM or 580 AM.

Another valuable tool for information is CodeRED. Grand Traverse County Emergency Management utilizes this software for various notifications including:
  • Amber alerts
  • Boil water advisories
  • Evacuation notices
  • Notifications of hazardous traffic or road conditions
