Changes to Topeka's EAS on Cox
« on: March 25, 2011, 08:52:04 PM »
I recently stumbled upon a letter Cox sent to the County regarding changes to the EAS.  It states that the ability to locally activate it is no longer available and that it will still be activated in compliance with Kansas' EAS plan.  Well I skimmed through that plan and didn't really see anything telling what was required to be activated.  So my question is...do you guys know or think they will still activate the EAS for Tornado Warnings? As far as I know, the only thing that absolutely must be activated are Emergency Action Notifications.  Here is an image of the letter.


PS I sent Cox an Email and all they pretty much said is that they routinely test the equipment and NOAA is in charge of activating emergency weather alerts.
