Nationwide EAS test
Below is an FCC video announcement about next week's nationwide emergency alert system test.Coordinated by the Federal Communications Commission and FEMA, it takes place Wednesday, November 9 at 2pm Eastern. The reason FEMA and FCC are spreading the word about this TEST is so that people will not misunderstand and think there is a real emergency happening. The EAS has never before been tested nationwide at the same time. Every TV/Cable and RADIO will be involved in this TEST. This will help the FCC and FEMA to identify any problems in the alert system.
