Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test , Wednesday, Nov. 9
 
On Wednesday, November 9, FEMA, DHS and FCC will conduct the first national test of the Nationwide Emergency Alert System (EAS) test. This nationwide test will kick off at 2 p.m (EST) and run concurrently across all time zones.

This system test is the first of its kind designed to broadcast a nationwide message to the American public. In the history of the country, nothing like it has been conducted on such a level.

As you may be aware, there have been tests in the past, but not of this magnitude encompassing all regions of the nation simultaneously. The three (3) minute test will run concurrently on all radio and TV band stations exceeding the previous messages broadcast which were anywhere from a 30 second to 1 minute message.

THIS IS ONLY A TEST! For more information, log on to: www.fema.gov/emergency/ipaws/eas_info.shtm or www.nationaldialogue-emergencyalertsystem.ideascale.com.
