REMINDER: Nationwide simultaneous test of Emergency Alert System today

Remember, today an Emergency Alert System (EAS) test will be conducted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Communications Commission, simultaneously, across several time zones.

During the test you may see or hear a message saying, “This is a test” – similar to the normal monthly EAS tests. The text at the top of your television screen may read, “Emergency Alert Notification has been issued.” Not every video message scroll may indicate a test is underway.

To read more about this test, please see this previous story which includes some remarks from United Way staff.
