June 16, 2011 at 5:45 AM (PT)
The GLOBAL SECURITY SYSTEMS ALERT STUDIO has been chosen by the state of ALABAMA for use as part of the EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM. GSS says ALABAMA is the first statewide CAP-compliant rollout in the country.
ALERT FM is an aggregator of State and Local emergency information with multiple contact paths for mass notification. Emergency information is delivered via the data subcarrier of existing FM radio stations, SMS (text) and email. This personal alert and messaging system allows emergency management officials to create and send digital alerts and messages to recipients such as first responders, school officials, businesses, and citizens based on geographic or organizational groupings. Such alerts and messages might include NOAA weather warnings, evacuation instructions, homeland security notices, Amber Alerts, or school closings.
