Here’s a blotter I got from a local Police Cheif. If THIS doesn’t freak you out, I don’t know what will. From the Chief’s blotter in a message to CERT trained professionals to “help easing in panic”:
A message from Chief Jack Plummer:
In an article related to the possibility of overwhelming calls that could occur to 911 centers because of the first-ever national test of the Emergency Alert System, which is scheduled for November 9th at 2 pm Eastern time, it was suggested that “Local officials should be heavily and directly involved in getting the message out that this is only a test.”
“The test will be the first time the White House has taken over radio, TV, cable and certain satellite programs simultaneously.”
Unlike local test you “will not be able to tune away from it.”
The article suggested that the word be put out through social media, fliers and news releases of the upcoming test.
We expect more information to come out as we get closer.
