KEC56 (sometimes referred to as Dallas All Hazards) is a NOAA Weather Radio station that serves Dallas/Fort Worth and surrounding areas south, east and north of the immediate metroplex. It is programmed from the National Weather Service forecast office in Fort Worth, Texas with its transmitter located in Dallas. It broadcasts weather and hazard information for the following Counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hunt, Kaufman, Rockwall, and Tarrant.
KEC-56 was one of 300 NOAA Weather Radio stations added across the United States in the 1970s. Until synthesized voice broadcasts were introduced into the NOAA Weather Radio network in 1998, both this station and KEC55 in Fort Worth simulcasted.
Throughout early 2009, all NOAA Weather Radio Stations within the North Texas region (including KEC56) began airing a monthly 5 minute talk show titled "The Lightning Bolt" where listener-submitted questions related to weather are answered by meteorologists.
