What is FIPS?
Federal Information Processing
Standards (FIPS) Codes for Geographical Areas.
If you have a newer model Weather Radio, amateur radio transceiver or
scanner, you may wish to have those FIPS codes you are interested in
preprogrammed. Using these codes you not only receive the tone
activation alerts, but in some radios, a brief identification of the
weather problem anticipated.
FIPS codes provide unique codes for U.S. states, counties, populated places, primary county divisions, and other locational entities as well as for countries.
