Don't Stress-It's Just a Test: 2 p.m. EST Wednesday, 11/9/11

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday, November 9th at 2 p.m.

The EAS is a national alert and warning system established to enable the President of the United States to address the American public during emergencies.  NOAA's National Weather Service, governors and state and local emergency authorities also use parts of the system to issue more localized emergency alerts.

Similar to local EAS tests that are already conducted frequently, the nationwide test will involve broadcast radio and television stations, cable television, satellite radio and television services and wireline video service providers across all states and the territories of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and American Somoa.

At 2 p.m. EST, the public will hear a message indicating: "THIS IS A TEST" and the audio message will last 30 seconds.  This national test will help the federal partners and EAS participants determine the realiability of the system and its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential dangers nationally and regionally.
