Alert FM Emergency Warning System Debuts in Europe
Bordeaux-Merignac - Sep 6, 2011 - Alert FM is expanding into Europe as part of the WorldCast Systems turnkey suite for broadcasters. Alert FM is already deployed extensively throughout the United States, enabling emergency managers to reach large numbers of the population with mass notifications sent via radio stations in audio, text and email.
Alert FM provides government officials at national and local levels the ability to create and send digital alert text and audio messages to multiple fixed and mobile devices equipped with a standard FM chip. Alert FM uses FM radio to deliver emergency alert text messages to radio listeners at large, or specifically defined audiences such as those within municipalities, counties, campuses, arenas, convention halls or shopping malls. Alert FM technology will deliver text alerts comprised of up to 240 characters and will awake sleeping Alert FM-enabled devices to broadcast the local EAS audio message and display corresponding text alerts.
Alert FM will be demonstrated at WorldCast Systems booth 8.B50 during IBC 2011.
