[NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A new national alert system is set to begin in New York City that will alert the public to emergencies via cell phones.
It’s called the Personal Localized Alert Network or PLAN. Presidential and local emergency messages as well as Amber Alerts would appear on cell phones equipped with special chips and software.
Got to love the little buggers. Unwanted propaganda and a guarantee to kill service if there is a real emergency as the system is overwhelmed.
