The national EAS test is coming in August, and a critical Form One deadline is almost here.
On June 3, 2019 the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau issued a Public Notice advising that all entities required to comply with FCC Emergency Alert System rules must participate in this year’s test. August 7, 2019, at 2:20 p.m. EDT is the date and time of this year’s National EAS Test, with August 21 as the backup date.
The FCC has announced Forms One, Two and Three reports must be filed through the FCC’s online EAS Test Reporting System (ETRS).
Test participants must renew their identifying information by completing and filing Form One in the FCC’s online EAS Test Reporting System (ETRS) on or before July 3. You should file a separate copy of Form One for each of its EAS decoders, encoders, or combined decoder/encoder units.
Form Two must be filed on the day of the test, while Form Three is to be filed in September.
