FCC Update on Nov 2011 National EAS Test
Washington - Aug 23, 2011 - On Feb. 2, 2011, the Federal Communications Commission amended its Part 11 rules to provide for national testing of the EAS and the collection of data from such tests. The first nationwide test of the EAS will occur on Nov. 9, 2011 at 2 p.m. EST. The test will include transmission by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) of a live Emergency Action Notification (EAN) code to all EAS participants and notice to the general public that the EAS has been activated for a national emergency, along with an audible notice that "this is a test." The Commission and FEMA, in conjunction with broadcasters and cable providers, are engaged in outreach efforts aimed at informing the general public that the Nov. 9 test will be just that: a test.
The FCC issued a public notice to clarify some details of the upcoming test.
