Letter to the editor: Summit County emergency alert system is crying wolf

Jen Gerard
Silverthorne

The alerts being sent to Summit County residents and guests on a regular basis — using loud, Amber Alert sounding notifications — should be reserved for true emergencies. A child being abducted or an approaching wildfire are genuine reasons for an alert of this nature. Having your TV or phone blacked out with a loud notification to wear a mask is an extreme abuse of power and only seeks to desensitize people from alerts for real emergencies.
