     61'''Example template'''
     62
     63An Alert template usually contains pre-filled information about probable alert messages so that it is easier to broadcast them during emergencies. You should mark up places in the text that need to be changed within a pair of square brackets with capitalized text inside as shown below. If you mark a field as locked, it cannot be edited in the actual alert message that inherits the template and extends it.
