Boise, ID - Oct 15, 2010 - In July 2010, Ward Noland, warning coordinator for the Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security, sent a letter to that state's broadcasters outlining some of the coming changes to EAS. In that letter, Noland states that The Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security will upgrade its emergency notification system, which will include the Internet as the primary communications link from the state. In addition, the state's DHS has offered to provide CAP-compliant equipment to all broadcasters in Idaho.

Details on when the news equipment will be shipped to stations has not yet been made available.

Many broadcasters have speculated if funding might be made available to cover the cost of the CAP upgrades. At least in Idaho, this is a non-issue.
