Washington - May 2, 2013 - The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has launched a cooperative effort with Premiere Networks and private sector broadcasters that will provide an alternative method for radio stations to receive emergency information during a national emergency.

FEMA has added the nationally syndicated audio network that reaches more than 190 million weekly listeners as a Primary Entry Point station, which delivers information and instructions to the public in an emergency. As part of the cooperative effort, Premiere satellite program receivers in thousands of affiliate radio stations will be another method to deliver EAS messages.
