Why didn't the school employees tun on a radio?
9 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the alarm goes off and the office staff and principal use the telephone to find out if the alarm is for real no one seems to think about turning an a radio to find out the situation. There was as system called CONELRAD - Control of Electromagnetic Radiation - with the frequencies marked on AM radio dials. If the school didn't have a radio in the office there would be one in a car. Furthermore, all radios would advise folks to move to one of the CONELRAD frequencies. Indeed, at one of the children's homes a radio is playing music yet no CONELRAD announcements. Very unrealistic situation because of this. CONELRAD was replaced in 1963 by EBS, Emergency Broadcast System, then EAS, Emergency Alert System, which is now in use.
