People, Places & Events
 
Nationwide alert set Nov. 9
Special to The Monitor
CEDAR CREEK LAKE–The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will conduct the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS).
The nationwide test will occur at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, Central Time and may last up to three and a half minutes.
The public will hear a message indicating that “This is a test.” The audio message will be the same for both radio, television, and cable.
The national-level EAS is a public alert and warning system that enables the President of the United States to address the American public during extreme emergencies.
Similar to local EAS tests that are conducted frequently, the nationwide test will involve broadcast, cable and satellite radio and television stations and/or services and wire line providers across all states and territories.
For the past two years, as part of ongoing national preparedness planning efforts, FEMA, the FCC and other federal partners, state, local, tribal and territorial governments, EAS Participants, and others in the EAS Community have been working toward making this test a reality.
As these agencies prepare for testing their capabilities, this event serves as a reminder that everyone should establish an emergency preparedness kit and emergency plan for themselves, their families, communities, and businesses.
For more information about how to prepare for and stay informed about what to do in the event of an actual emergency, go to www.ready.gov.
