Facebook has rolled out nationwide emergency alerts for active shooters and unsafe conditions.
The new tool rolled out Tuesday after being tested in select cities over the past year.
City governments and emergency management officials now have access to Facebook’s local alerts feature which can help reach people faster and more efficiently.
Anyone with a link to these government, emergency management and first responders pages will get the alert.
You will see the local alert indicator next to the post in your newsfeed.
