The FCC’s EAS Operating Handbook helps EAS Participant personnel handle EAS messages and tests by outlining operational procedures and requirements found in the FCC’s EAS rules (47 CFR § 11.01, et seq.). The Handbook states in summary form the actions to be taken by personnel at EAS Participant facilities upon receipt of a National-level EAS Alert, Required National, Monthly and Weekly tests, and State and Local Area alerts.
A copy of the 2023 Handbook must be located at normal duty positions or EAS equipment locations. (47 CFR § 11.15.)
Stations should be aware that the EAS Operating Handbook includes numerous blanks for each station to fill in with its own unique practices and contacts. As a result, there is more involved than just printing a copy of the new EAS Handbook.
