During normal (or nonemergency) conditions, WNKI will broadcast general road conditions and pending weather updates, evacuation and re-entry information, and other information vital to the welfare of citizens of the Community. The broadcasts may also include other briefs on forest activity restrictions, general preparedness, items to consider for an emergency and any schedules pertaining to local exercises or demonstrations of emergency preparedness and or emergency communication operations.
During times of emergency, MHRC shall use its best efforts that WNKI will broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with updates as to the emergency at hand. A time of emergency may be determined by the Idyllwild Fire Protection District (IFPD) Fire Chief or by the Public Information Officer (“PIO”) assigned by Incident Command. The updates relating to the emergencies will be provided to WNKI from IFPD (or any other designated public service office) or the PIO and then broadcast to the general public.
