Administrators should be aware that if an emergency alert feed is being presented to web site visitors by using a feed widget, news widget, etc., an extra step should be taken to ensure that caching is disabled for this widget.
If using a feed widget, you should use the following additional args:
The first arg will ensure that the alert RSS feed only caches for 5 minutes. The second arg will disable the widget cache for this widget.
If using the news widget, or some other widget, only the “no_cache” arg is necessary.
