AM Radio Station
The Town of Corte Madera operates an informational radio station, which broadcasts advisories to listeners on the standard AM radio band. The station broadcasts on 1330 AM on the radio dial. It is used primarily for the broadcast of repetitive messages regarding traffic, severe weather conditions (winter storms or red flag days), and fire safety messages. These messages are routinely updated. Messages such as evacuation instructions are updated on an as-needed basis during emergency situations.
