How it works
The system uses Crawl Page Templates to create the Emergency Alert Crawl messages. The Crawl Page Template specifies how the Emergency Message text will appear when it is displayed. This includes things like Typeface, Text Size, Text Color, Background Color, and Edges. Any attribute that can be assigned to a character in the Title Composer can be assigned to the Emergency Message Text. See the Title Composer Manual for more information.
There is one Crawl Template that is designated as the "Default" Crawl Template. All Emergency Alert Messages will use this Default Template unless the Alert Type has a different Crawl Template assigned to it. The Emergency Alert Control Tab Window (shown below) is used to assign Crawl Template Pages to each Type of Emergency Alert.
