To say I am disappointed in the response of the High School Friday thru yesterday is an understatement. Yes social media nd the internet is a fine way to reach people…except the people at work where personal internet use might be prohibited…or people in their cars, or people who do not have smart phones or even internet service. That is why WHDD (Robin Hood Radio) are here for instantaneous release of information not only on the internet, but on WHDD AM/FM, and WBSL FM locally here in our Tri-State Region. Not once were we contacted by anyone from the high school. or administration….not once. We were contacted by parents (about 20 calls). We contacted the state police and got information on-air by 11 AM (we waited to go on-air until conformation from police). We are an asset that should be utilized for situations like this. I am disappointed that we are not included in the emergency plan. That is a big mistake.
