Amber alerts, Silver Alerts if that fucker can't do booty alerts then fuck it I don't need it.
Well ok if it does Byron alerts then maybe it might be worth something.

I didn't even know emergency alerts were enabled on my phone until the stupid thing went crazy last night. Now Amber is turned off but I notice there's a Presidential Alert that I can't turn off and two warning levels above Amber but neither is Plaza Alert level. Now that would be useful.

Those amber and silver alerts are our chance to act like a community and maybe make a difference in the outcome. Try to imagine how you would feel if it were your family member missing and have some respect. But not saying that a Plaza Alert wouldn't be nice.
