The CDS Alert Emergency Radio Program provides our participants with the most
up-to-the-minute information about emergencies happening throughout the
New York City metropolitan area.
Obtaining a continuous flow of information from multiple federal,state and local law enforcement,
emergency service agencies, and security concerns, CDS Alert provides you with updates and information
from the scene of an incident.
Interoperability allows you to receive information from the source. When you need to know more about
an incident, you can contact the CDS dispatcher and request additional information. By reports coming
from the scene, our dispatchers are able to answer your questions and share the facts that you need.
Also, our dispatchers put into plain, everyday English the information relayed by emergency service
agencies. You do not have to learn codes or jargon to understand what is happening or what
measures are being taken to assist those in need.
What you do NOT get with CDS Alert
When you are a participant on CDS Alert you get the best, most current and most accurate information
available. What you do not get is aimless chatter. We do not broadcast inconsequential information.
We want you to know that what you hear on your radio is important, current information, not every
minor occurrence. On a good day in New York City, your radio is quiet. On a bad day, the flow of
information is near continuous.
