L&C County Emergency Operation Plan
EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM
The Emergency Alert System is a digitized warning system for a three county area, which are Lewis and Clark, Jefferson and Broadwater Counties. The system is designed to provide a 24 hour warning point to the public for emergencies and disasters. KMTX Radio Station (950 AM) is the primary station, with simulcast capability to the other participating local stations: KCAP, KBLL, KHKR and KTVH-TV. KMTX and the local dispatch center have generators, to enable broadcasting during power outages. This makes it essential for people to have battery powered radios to receive these important messages during times of emergency.
The Target Notification is used by the 911 Center to call land lines with a warning in a specific area.
