Emergency Broadcast System Test TOMORROW

Emergency Alert System Test in Boulder City, NVThe first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System will take place tomorrow at 11:00am so don’t freak out if you’re watching the tube or groovin’ to some radio tunes. Programs (radio and tv) will be briefly interrupted while this test takes place.

This test is a coordinated effort by FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Association) and the FCC (the Federal Communications Commission) and the goal is to assess the reliability and effectiveness of the alert, which although initially designed in the 1950s, has never actually gone through fully nationwide test. Naturally, they want to confirm that the system will work should they need to alert a large region of the US to an emergency.  Okey-doke.

Although the emergency alert system test will resemble the periodic, monthly tests that most of us know about – FEMA and the FCC worry that people might freak out when it’s carried out across all channels and stations at the same time…so they want to emphasize that it’s only a test.

So don’t be callin’ the BCPD to let them know something’s amiss, eh?
