The FCC is changing up the country’s emergency alert system to prevent another Hawaii incident
The Verge ---------- The FCC announced on Thursday that it’ll bolster the country’s Emergency Alert System to prevent unexpected false alarms, like the one that happened in Hawaii earlier this year. State and local officials will now be able to conduct “live code” tests that’ll use the same alert codes and processes that would be required in an actual emergency. The idea is that officials will better learn the system while the public will get used to responding to alerts and know what to expect. Everyone in the area will get a test message, like a real alert. To learn more click on the picture below to read the article.
