Beacon Journal | 01/29/2006 | Summit's warning system in place
In interesting warning system. Instead of trying to get TV & Radio stations to broadcast warnings you instead get a phone call. Sounds like a realization - with satelitte options you no longer have to watch local stations. The Beacon Journal has also had a falling in subscribers as well - making it tougher to get out local news.
Also, as the article pointed out, during THE blackout in 2003 there was limited ways to keep people notified as to what was going on.
