Georgia’s radio and television stations are our state’s first line of emergency notification, whether the situation involves severe weather, civil defense, missing persons, or law enforcement emergencies.
The Georgia Association of Broadcasters, with member input, worked with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency/GEMA and created Georgia’s Emergency Alert System. GAB serves as a clearinghouse for all technical, operational and testing information concerning Emergency Systems in Georgia.
GAB has worked closely with our partners at GEMA, GBI, NOAA, GPB and the Governor’s Office to ensure that Georgia’s EAS plan is easy to follow for broadcasters.
The GAB, in a partnership with GEMA and GBI has created a State of Georgia Emergency Alert System (EAS) plan which outlines procedures.
Through the GAB, you are also able to join our AlertNewsNet service, which disseminates timely information via email on missing persons including images. To join this list, contact GAB.
