Imagine my horror this AM when my phone started buzzing and ringing and I wasn’t even awake yet. Didn’t know what was making my phone buzz, ring and vibrate so violently. I stumbled out the kitchen and saw the Amber Alert. Didn’t even know there was a Boulevard, CA until now.
This isn’t the first Amber Alert I’ve been rudely awakened too, but my first here In CA. The first was not quite 4 weeks ago while I was in Vegas and Nevada Highway Patrol saw fit to alert everyone, even non-residents of the alert.
I know from my FB feed that at some point during the night all of my friends got such a message to their phone. I’m not sure what I think about being pushed Amber Alerts, especially at all hours of the day. What’s your thought on the idea of 24/7 push notices on Amber Alerts? Is it good use or abuse of technology?
