Sage Alerting Systems, Inc., will continue its legacy of innovation and excellence in the Emergency Alert System development and implementation. The original Sage ENDEC led the way in ease of use, reliability and functionality and meaningful features that allow broadcasters, cable operators and public safety agencies to get alerts out to the public in a rapid and predictable manner. Our mission is to bring our years of experience to the new CAP compliant FCC EAS requirements through the Sage Digital ENDEC.
