Michigan Amber Alerts Now On Facebook

I highly recommend that you “like” this Facebook page.  If the powers that be here at Cars 108 would let me, I’d actually INSIST that you like it, but they keep telling me I shouldn’t be so bossy.

It’s the new Michigan Amber Alert page, where you’ll get notifications about missing children.  The social networking site is teaming up with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the Department of Justice, in order to help officials reach more people with news about missing children.

Of course Cars 108 is committed to getting Amber Alerts out to our listeners immediately when children in our area are missing.  When a child is missing, time is of the essence, and the first hours of the search are the most critical.  This is just one more way of reaching many many people, and I urge you “like” this page, and share with your friends immediately when you hear news of a missing child.

According to MSNBC, 53 Amber alert pages have been created:

“One for each state, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia. Facebook users will also be able to share the AMBER Alerts with their friends. With more than a half-billion users on Facebook, these new pages represent an important expansion of the National AMBER Alert program.”

The launch takes place on the 15th anniversary of the abduction and murder of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, for whom the alert system was named. AMBER Alerts — known officially as “America’s Missing: Broadcasting Emergency Response” — utilizes the Emergency Alert System (EAS) to notify broadcasters and state transportation officials about a recently abducted child.
