“Cell phone subscribers are unaware that they are only an FM chip away from having the ability to receive real-time hazard and alert information — including NOAA weather, Amber Alerts and other local notifications.”

So say officials of Global Security Systems, the company that is promoting Alert FM, a digital alert and messaging system.

“Cell phone subscribers — more than 230 million Americans — have a unique opportunity to receive alerts with the activation of a standard FM chip that exists in most handsets provided by a majority of wireless carriers,” the company said in a statement.

The company says its Alert FM can work in concert with wireless carriers to safeguard communities and enhance national EAS.
