Be Prepared for "National Preparedness Month"
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently declared September "National Preparedness Month." Are you prepared to take this opportunity to educate your customers about the new Public Alert products?
Public Alert is an extension of the broadcast weather alert system run by two federal government agencies. In addition to tornado, hurricane, flash flood and other weather-related warnings, government broadcasts now will alert the public about many other hazards, such as Amber Alerts, chemical spills, forest fires, boil water alerts and terrorist alerts.
