Why do some people fear the Emergency Alert System? Is it the sound? the fact that it could be an actual emergency? Let’s find out
I, myself, can get pretty freaked out when I hear that infamous dial tone (ERRR!, ERRR!) in the middle of the night. However, the EAS comes on during the day at anytime. I just wanna know why people are so creeped out by it.
I sometimes think maybe it’s because people fear actual emergencies and when they hear the EAS go off when it disturbs them from their sleep or just plain catches us off guard. C’mon, why would they have something like that? These pointless “tests” in the middle of the night, scaring the crap out of people. No one wants to wake up to that!.
