AMBER is officially a acronym for: America’s Missing Broadcast Emergency Response: AMBER Alert.  It was named for Amber Hagerman, a 9 year old who was abducted and murdered in Arlington Texas in 1996.  In the United States AMBER Alerts are distributed via commercial radio stations, Internet radio, satellite  radio, TV stations, and cable TV by the Emergency Alert System and NOAA Whether Radio.  The alerts are also issued via e-mail, electronic traffic-condition signs and LED billboards along with LED/LCD signs of billboard companies. AMBER Alert has also teamed up with social media companies to relay AMBER Alerts to an ever growing demographic.  The decision to declare an AMBER Alert is made by each police organization (state police or highway patrol) that investigates each of the abductions. Public information usually consists of the name and description of the abductee, a description of the abductor, their license plate and vehicle description if available.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.amber alert
