Lamar Advertising to Display FEMA Emergency Alerts on Digital Billboards Nationwide-Includes Camden County


After receiving word of this partnership between Lamar Advertising Company and FEMA regarding their new partnership for releasing IPAWS alerts on digital billboards throughout the country, Camden County, MO Emergency Management Director Ron Gentry contacted our local Lamar office directly to find out if the residents and visitors of Camden County would see them here on our billboards.

Tim Ketchum of the local Lamar office confirmed that digital billboards throughout their coverage area would be included. This area includes Camden County!
