Alert FM Added to Florida Stations
Jackson, MS - May 14, 2008 - Broward and Miami-Dade Counties in south Florida are the first two counties in that state to have access to Alert FM, an FM radio-based emergency alert and messaging system. Alert FM allows authorized emergency management officials to send alerts and messages to specific groups of first responders, business and citizens before, during and after a crisis. Targeted alerts and messages are delivered by satellite to the data subcarrier of FM transmission towers and can be received on Alert FM receivers and other mobile devices.
The initial South Florida FM stations participating in Alert FM are WRTO (98.3), WLRN (91.3) and WAMR (107.5). Alert FM receivers are now available to consumers. Easily programmable, the devices run on AA batteries and have no recurring fees after purchase.
