Jackson, MS - Oct 13, 2010 - Global Security Systems (GSS) is expanding its FM radio-based alerting technology to include cellular carriers with a Commercial Mobile Alert Service (CMAS) option. Alert FM is a public safety tool that allows emergency management officials to disseminate warnings and safety information in the form of text alerts to FM radio-enabled wireless phones based on their specified locations.
