AMBER ALERT SENT IN ERROR

An EAS Child Abduction Alert (AMBER ALERT) message was sent in error this morning from the Brazos County Emergency Communications District when a supervisor was performing a routine weekly test of the equipment that is used to initiate local alerts for EAS District 14.  This alert was in turn forwarded by local primary station KJXJ-FM and then relayed by local Brazos Valley radio and TV stations as well as Cable Systems.  The Brazos County Emergency Communications District says that they will be reviewing procedures and making changes where needed to ensure that such an error is less likely to occur in the future.
