This Is Only a Test

TN Public Health Radio TestA school campus was surrounded by emergency vehicles at 8 AM, October 23, 2014. A parent had abducted a child and hidden a bomb on the property. The school was locked-down then evacuated. Onsite were city, county and state law enforcement, along with local EMS, EMA, fire, school personnel, the FBI and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. None of it was real, but the Tennessee Department of Health made sure everyone knew they were testing their new portable RadioSTAT emergency advisory radio station in preparation for just such an emergency.

Go Elsewhere or Go Dark
FCC ruling could make life difficult for top-of-band emergency advisory Travelers Information Stations near New York.
