Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test Today

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Wednesday November 9, 2011


Nyack College Director of Auxiliary Services, Michele Blanck, shares the following announcement.

“Today, Wednesday, November 9, 2001 at 2:00 p.m. the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security, and the Federal Communications Commission will conduct the first national test of the Nationwide Emergency Alert System (EAS) test and run concurrently across all time zones. 

"This system test is the first of its kind designed to broadcast a nationwide message to the American public. In the history of the country, nothing like it has been conducted on such a level. As you may be aware, there have been tests in the past, but not of this magnitude encompassing all regions of the Nation simultaneously. The test will run for approximately 30 seconds.

"This alert is intended to ensure that no one misinterprets this test as a live occurrence.  FEMA's website click here provides more information regarding the test."
