Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System - November 9, 2011 - 2 p.m.

On Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 2 p.m. (Eastern), 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 November 9, the public will hear a message broadcast on radio and television indicating that “this is a test.”  The message may last up to three and a half minutes.

This Nationwide EAS Test will help the federal partners and EAS participants determine the reliability of the system and its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential dangers nationally and regionally.

The Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management is urging citizens to use this test as a reminder that everyone should establish an emergency preparedness kit and emergency plan for themselves, their families, communities, and businesses.
