Community Radio Calendar: EAS national test

Community radio stations are encouraged by NFCB to mark your calendars for a significant event impacting radio stations.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency tentatively plans to conduct this year’s national Emergency Alert System test on Wednesday, Aug. 11. Stations are expected to be asked to test their EAS equipment and ensure they can confirm successful broadcast of the national test.

There is a backup date of Wednesday, Aug. 25 in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Should your station have questions, please contact NFCB today.
