As the U.S. braces for the start of what is predicted to be an active 2007 ATLANTIC hurricane season, GLOBAL SECURITY SYSTEMS announced that broadcasters in the GULF COAST region have agreed to improve broadcast and communications infrastructures for emergency alerts and messaging. Broadcaster associations in ALABAMA and FLORIDA join the MISSISSIPPI ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS in supporting deployment of an FM-based digital alert and messaging platform with ALERT FM. GSS will showcase ALERT FM at the NAB 2007 Show, to be held at the LAS VEGAS Convention Center, APRIL 14-19.
"Local broadcasters in ALABAMA will have the ability to play an active role in protecting their communities by using the ALERT FM system," said ALABAMA ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS Executive Director SHARON TINSLEY. "We encourage them to participate and cement their commitment to supporting our first responders, businesses and citizens."
