Alert System (EAS)
EAS sends out alerts to broadcast media, cable television, radio stations, satellites, pagers, Direct Broadcast Satellite, High Definition Television, Video Dial Tone, and to devices for the needs of special populations such as the deaf and those with special language requirements. The EAS will be activated when immediate public notification is needed due to threatening weather, technological or radiation emergencies, chemical spills, explosions, fires, or any other disaster.
When necessary, the Office of Emergency Management can interrupt programming on most channels of the cable network in order to provide viewers information about an emergency event.
