This morning I received an email about earthquake drill. It said “it is a test of SMC emergency notification system. This test is conducted as part as an earthquake drill” the email was sent by the school and notified me there was an earthquake. I was at home and ready to go out. When I received the announce, I was a little bit nervous since there are almost no earthquake in my home city. After I received the notice, I told my friends and they all received it too. Luckily, it is not a serious one and I cannot even feel the earthquake.
This is a good system in a place that earthquake is often occurring. The city governor can dominate the media and announce to everyone that there is an earthquake drill. They can sent the message through email, text messages, radio, news and etc. The governor sent it at once they know there will be an earthquake. The media has this benefit. They can spread important message in second even if people are away. The technology really helps a lot in this generation.
