StayAlert  

Alerts are broadcast by a highly reliable network of public and commercial radio stations that are linked together without reliance on the Internet.

Each Government agency receives D2D (direct to dashboard) secured access to the Alert Portal

Terrestrial radio stations have serious emergency infrastructure such as backup generators, and redundant equipment to make sure the signal is always on the air.
Cell phone systems historically fail during catastrophic emergency situations

What does a station have to do to participate?

  • Install the Ausio metadata processor 
     

  • Alert Data will not be displayed on your RDS encoder during the trial, after the pilot program is over, you will have 100% control of potential Alert content. 
     

  • A once daily daily :15 second test message will display and be verified for a quick system confirmation. 

StayAlert History

Working with NPR Laboratories, the StayAlert team demonstrated a national Alert initiative 

e911GulfStationsPosterStayAlert.png

This national project demonstrated an emergency alerting system for the deaf and hard-of-hearing population in the U.S. using broadcast radio as the transmission medium.

This affordable radio receiver interfaces RDS radio data to real world functions such as bright beacon flashing, and bed shakers.
