EAS turns blue.

The FCC has adopted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking suggesting the addition of a “Blue Alert” to the Emergency Alert System to alert the public to threats to law enforcement. The notice was passed by a unanimous vote at the Commission’s Open Meeting last week. If the proposal is adopted, a code will be added to the EAS signal that state and local agencies can use to send such alerts.
