NFCB community radio member stations must make an Emergency Alert System deadline, and note new handbook.
According to Lexology, the new FCC filing system, called the EAS Test Reporting System, allows broadcast outlets to electronically report during the upcoming EAS National Test, which is Sept. 28.
All radio stations, including community radio as well as LPFM stations, must register by Friday, Aug. 26, by filling out what is known as Form One. Registration information and details are at the FCC website.
A new EAS operations handbook was issued Aug. 19. NFCB member stations can find it in our members area, under the Operations tab.
