The last few years has seen FEMA implimenting IPAWS which requires hardware boxes to manage local and national EAS alerts.
If you slap these boxes right on the Internet, without a firewall, and without changing the default login, anybody with a net connection might get in and send an emergency notification to everyone in the state.
This has the actual broadcast alert, which someone just picked up from this video."
