Re: Guy who pushed wrong button in Hawaii

Maybe an earnest, "Whoops!" and then play some good songs loud.

Re: Guy who pushed wrong button in Hawaii

He seems like a scapegoat to me too. Unfortunately, they have every right to fire him.

And yeah, this could happen to anyone. I actually did something similar though not as bad. Was working at the airport and accidentally sent off a hidden code saying I had been kidnapped by terrorists. I'll not go into specifics since I don't want to tip off actual terrorists but it had happened cause I didn't fully listen during my training.

Wasn't something that gets out to the public though so didn't get fired. Actually, I got a standing ovation from my entire department of like 20 people right when I entered the building (laughing at my error). Guess airport security checked in with them during their search to find me and the terrorists. Must say, they tracked me down quite quickly so was impressed with security.

Re: Guy who pushed wrong button in Hawaii

I was out for a walk from my home, went down a busy street about a mile away, when I noticed I forgot to pull my zipper up, button my jeans and buckle my belt.

Re: Guy who pushed wrong button in Hawaii

Probably they couldn't quickly shoot of a "this is a test" alert because such a message was cut from the original spec to save money.

To do so required a rapid reconfigure of the system and senior managerial involvement.

And everyone was panicking because this was something no one apart from the coders had ever thought would happen, so no procedure in place.

Re: Guy who pushed wrong button in Hawaii

I think I heard on TV, a different guy with the power to call off the alert, was not familiar with how to access social media, on his mobile phone, to inform the people the alert was called off.

(Someone taught him after this happened, and now he knows how to access social media on his phone, to call off the alert, in case this happens again)
