Mobile Natural Disaster Alerts, EAS On The Go
I just had to share this story with everyone. With all the flooding, tornadoes, and other natural disasters, this is a most timely story about FEMA and the FCC teaming up to make anybody who has a cell phone aware of any potential natural disasters in their area. According to our friends at smartplanet.com
Called the “Personal Localized Alerting Network,” or PLAN, the service is backed by the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the four major U.S. wireless carriers — Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. It promises to quickly dissipate information during an emergency situation.
Do you think this is a good thing? Will it work for everybody? Comment below
