Bush Signs Executive Order on Emergency Alert System (6/27)
Tuesday, June 27, 2006 | Comments
President Bush signed an executive order directing the Department of Homeland Security to upgrade the nation's emergency alert system. Within 90 days, DHS must submit a plan for implementing the order to the president. DHS is directed to work with other federal agencies, including the FCC, which in the past has been responsible for the emergency alert system, on the plan. Various wireless technologies have been discussed for use in an updated emergency alert system, which generally has been broadcast on televisions and radios in the past.
