"We have a robust ‘system of systems,'" says Robert Griffin, director of Arlington's Office of Emergency Management (OEM), "including Arlington Alert [which sends emergency alerts and notifications to participants by email and text and voice messages] and 1700AM Arlington [an emergency radio station], that allows us to get important information quickly to those who live and work here, as well as visit."
The WAVES system can be activated in specific neighborhoods only, enabling police to help look for a lost child, for example."This outdoor warning system is another important tool in our emergency communications arsenal," Griffin says.
