California’s emergency alert system has been a disaster. A statewide fix is planned
Quote:
“There’s a tendency for people in public safety to be afraid of warning. They usually see it as an opportunity to get in trouble,” Botterell said. “There is a significant political risk of being hauled in front of your county supervisors because they got a lot of angry phone calls because you interrupted the football game.”

Good article - many thanks for posting. As a Ventura County resident, I would have to say the local system worked well and was activated appropriately.

In any operation, i someone fails to step up to the plate in the absence of a supervisor, it is a failure of the local office procedures/relationship/ culture rather than any particular alert system. It all comes down to whose hand is on the throttle,regardless of whatever legislation might be passed.
