Bozeman, MT – The Federal Emergency Management Agency has released a series of public service announcements explaining the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) messages. The relatively new WEA alerts have been activated several times in the past couple months in Montana for AMBER Alerts catching many people off guard. Gallatin County Emergency Management is encouraging local media outlets to utilize the Ad Council PSAs to help educate our community on this new technology. The PSAs are available on the Ad Council website at http://bit.ly/11R0A6i. For more information on WEA here in Gallatin County, please visit our blog at http://bit.ly/11mfJdY.
