I'm certain the government folks working to protect us 24x7 are doing
everything they can, but the fact of the matter is the public alert
systems in the US suck. Some just suck less.
"Butts said he often finds out about things like the change in the
national threat level on CNN hours before the Communications Center
receives a teletype about it."
Butts is the Gloucester County Emergency Response Coordinator including
the county 9-1-1 communications center.
ISPs and other communication providers should be prepared to share
information directly and quickly with each other. If you wait to hear
from government officials to decide what sanitized information to share,
it will be hours later. If ever.
