Community radio needs to be ready for an upcoming test.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has informed the FCC that the next nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System comes up on September 27, with a back-up date of October 4. Your station should be prepared to participate in the test on this date.
In addition, the Commission has updated its reporting system for stations to provide information about the success of the test. The FCC issued instructions to remind stations to create user names in the system. You have until August 28 to update your information in the system. However, you are encouraged to confirm your details and make sure you’re ready for the upcoming national test.
More updates will be available to NFCB member stations in the coming weeks.
