[ARCHIVED] National Emergency Alert System Test on November 9th at 1:00 pm

The first-ever nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System scheduled for Wednesday, November 9 at 1 pm for radio and television.

The first-ever nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System scheduled for Wednesday, November 9 at 1 pm. FEMA says the audio of the test will be exactly the same for radio and television. The difference will be in what viewers actually see on their television screens. Because the federal government wants to test the actual notification that would be sent in a real emergency, the words scrolling across the television screen will only say Emergency Action Notification. It will be up to the local broadcasters to add the words, this is only a test.
