This is just a test

The FEMA, EAS (Emergency Alert System), the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) will conduct the first ever National Test of the Nationwide Emergency Alert System. This nationwide test begins at 1 p.m. (CST) and run concurrently across all time zones.

According to a press release, 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. There have been tests in the past, but not of this magnitude encompassing all regions of the Nation simultaneously.

The three-minute test will run simultaneously on all radio and TV band stations exceeding the previous messages broadcast which were anywhere from 30-second to 1-minute message.
