FCC: Presidential emergency alerts to be tested


www.federalnewsradio.com

At the same time, said Fowlkes, the FCC is looking at how wireless broadband could also enhance the EAS as part of a recommendation that was in the FCC's National Broadband Plan from last year.

The idea is to leverage broadband and the Internet for emergency alerting with the "Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS) being developed by FEMA and the wireless industry."

This may be a development to keep an eye on folks...

Could be nothing at all, but still the language used about "leveraging" broadband in conjuction with FEMA is worth at least logging in the mental database imho...

I would agree this is a good traning tool to review the resources needed to have a shut down if needed. Just lay the foundation and build it up after..

Ah so they have their eyes on cell phones as well.
Shut them off just like they did in Egypt.

And the shutdown in Egypt was actually very pricey for the Government, they must have

We wittle people are too stupid to realize an earthquake has obliterated the midwest or we are under nuclear attack. Only Chairman Omaebama is can save us all even though power will be gone to most places where an alert would even do any good.

Maybe he'll come on and tell all the sheep to head for the nearest rail car to get free government transportation for their next check and off to FEMA camps they'll go.

This is all part of a much bigger scheme.
