FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and the FCC have scheduled a special National EAS Test on October 4th, 2023. The test will be fed via IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) at 2:20 PM Eastern. Stations should determine that their EAS system is operating correctly to ensure proper reception and retransmission of the National Test.
Engineers Larry Wilkins and John George will conduct a webinar to go over the EAS Test Reporting System (ETRS) form one (changes due September 15th) and how to ensure EAS equipment is configured correctly to receive the National Periodic Test (NPT).
Representatives from Digital Alert System, Sage Alerting Systems, and Gorman-Relich will be in the meeting to answer any questions about setting up their systems correctly.
