Emergency Alert System

The Emergency Alert System provides varying levels of alerts and warnings. Check here for updates.

Here is information on the Maine AMBER Alert Program.

Each state develops its own plan to coordinate EAS activity among broadcasters, state government, and public safety organizations.  EAS is managed by a State Emergency Communications Committee (SECC).  

The 2017 revision of the State of Maine EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM Operational Plan is available for download.
