KLUX Receives The 2016 “Outstanding Media Award” from Emergency Management Association of Texas
The City of Corpus Christi – Nueces County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) continually evaluates new ways to reach the community for purposes of education and awareness. Recently, a new county-wide emergency notification system was implemented. “Citizen opt-in” is a key feature of this new tool, however getting citizen participation continues to be a challenge. A long standing partner of the Corpus Christi – Nueces County LEPC, KLUX stepped up and developed radio ads promoting the emergency notification system free of charge. KLUX runs the ads on a regular and continual basis as a service to the community. The radio station also continues its commitment to the LEPC and local community by only broadcasting official emergency public information, unedited, anytime there is a need. In addition, KLUX is always willing to provide advisement and support for the cause and mission of the LEPC and local emergency management programs.
