FEMA Plans First-Ever Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test

October 19, 2011 by legitgov

FEMA Plans First-Ever Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test 10 Oct 2011 On November 9, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will conduct the first-ever nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), a test that will last for approximately three minutes. Although local and state components of the EAS are tested on a weekly and monthly basis, there has never been a nationwide test or a national activation of the system. Unlike the monthly tests, the national test will occur almost simultaneously on almost all TV and radio stations. [There needs to be an alert that FEMA is doing an alert.]
