EAS Test Of The National Emergency Alert System

On Wednesday, November 9, FEMA and the FCC will conduct the first ever national test of the Emergency Alert System.

The Emergency Alert System (EAS) test will last approximately one minute and will be heard on all radio stations and television stations across the country. This nationwide test will help federal and local officials determine the reliability of the system and its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergency situations. For more information about this alert, please visit the EAS website.
