Congress recently passed the “Warning, Alert and Response Network (WARN) Act” as part of the larger port security bill, the “Safe Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (SAFE Act).” The “WARN Act” will establish a voluntary, national emergency alert system and will allocate $106 million for these purposes, as authorized by the reconciliation bill passed earlier this year. “This legislation is critical to ensuring the timely creation of the state-of-the-art emergency alert system envisioned in President Bush's July 26, 2006, Executive Order on Public Alert and Warning Systems. It will enable an effective, reliable, integrated, flexible and comprehensive system to alert and warn the American people in situations of war, terrorist attack, natural disaster or other hazards to public safety and well-being," stated TIA President Matthew J. Flanigan. "With our member companies designing, producing and deploying equipment that enables interoperable communications by our nation's first responders and other public safety agencies, TIA has a vested interest in this legislation.” For more information, see www.tiaonline.org/business/media/press_releases/2006/PR06-113.cfm or contact Danielle Jafari at (703) 907-7734, email [email protected].
