Jackson, MS - Jun 28, 2007 - Five radio stations in Alabama are among the first in the state to deploy a local platform for Alert FM, an FM-based digital alert and messaging system. The Alabama Broadcasters Association joined GSS for this announcement and encourage local broadcasters to support the Alert FM system as a demonstration of their commitment to first responders, businesses and citizens.

Alert FM uses RBDS to send digital information via FM radio stations. Targeted alerts and messages are delivered by satellite to FM transmission facilities and can be received on Alert FM receivers and other mobile devices.
