Emergency Alerts

Local radio and television broadcasters occupy a critical role during emergencies. We are the “First Informers” connecting our communities to public safety officials. Our news coverage serves as the “eyes and ears” of government officials during a crises. During emergencies, many stations provide uninterrupted life-saving information. Our one-to-many broadcast system allows us to send detailed emergency messages to all New Yorkers simultaneously free of charge. We are founding partners in the state AMBER Alert program and fully support programs to help vulnerable persons.
