When an emergency occurs, communication becomes critical. Emergency Management directors and local authorities plan for the “WHAT IFs”…..but what do you do if the electricity goes out and the cell towers are down, essentially eliminating the ability to communicate through cell phones and television broadcast? An AM Information Station provides a means of communication to speak directly to the public via a standard AM automobile radio receiver. Citizens do not need to purchase anything to have access to the broadcast.
Not only do you have a means of communication for the “WHAT IF” emergencies with an AM Information Station, but it can be utilized for public announcements, traffic issues, tourist centers, and public health warnings/information.
There are so many different types of users. For example: airports, border patrol, bridge access, EMA, DOTs, military, parking, seaports, schools, tourists’ centers, municipalities, public health, and more!
When broadcasting on an AM Information Station, the FCC requires the broadcast be related to travel, imminent danger, or emergencies. Music, business names or commercial information is never allowed.
Don’t get caught without a way to communicate when the “WHAT IF” happens. Be prepared. John Black, the Wireless Communications Manager for the City of Long Beach, CA said “Deployment went quickly and was completed in about 20 minutes. The coverage was phenomenal and absolutely unbelievable that a 10-watt station could be heard nearly 6-miles away in an urban environment with many tall buildings. Overall, the system was an excellent investment”, regarding the Portable Emergency Advisory Radio Station.
Include an AM Information Station to your communication arsenal and be prepared for the “WHAT IF”.
