Nobody thinks much about emergency response until there is an emergency. What role can community stations have beyond 4 beeps out the box every month to make sure that the emergency alert equipment is functioning? Broadcasters have a responsibility to provide emergency alert services to our communities, but emergency preparedness goes far beyond having a fully functional EAS system. Our panelists will discuss all facets of emergency preparedness from the EAS requirements and equipment considerations to station disaster plans and active engagement as a positive force for safeguarding public health and safety in the communities you serve.
