What is this?
My husband and I have been watching tv together,and 3 times this past month a thing comes across the screen~much like the Emergency Broadcast System.
It says CHILD ABDUCTION EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM.A child abduction emergency alert has been posted for: The entire state.For the hours between 9am-5pm.(although each time the times have been different)
Each time we saw this,my husband refused to let our daughter take the bus and drove her to school.We also didnt let her play outside during those times.
However,the news and what not never says anything about it or why it is being issued,or even what it means for that matter.
How can they say between certain hours when a child might be abducted? How do they issue one of these warnings and why?
If anyone knows,I'd be very intrested to know about it.Thanks.
