FCC Aims to Improve Usage of Mobile Emergency Alert System

By John D. McKinnon

WASHINGTON - Federal regulators are expected to push wireless carriers
to improve the targeting of local emergency alerts, in hopes that
public-safety officials will use the system more.

Local officials say they sometimes don't issue wireless alerts - which
produce a distinctive buzzing and squawking in mobile devices - lest
they needlessly alarm people who aren't in immediate danger.
