National EAS Test This Week

This is a reminder to community radio stations that the 2021 national EAS test will be held this week.

Currently, the test is scheduled at 2:20 p.m. Eastern on Aug. 11. This year’s test will be through the broadcast-based “daisy chain” system.

A backup date set for the same time on Wednesday, August 25. However, the announced date appears likely.

Stations are required to complete necessary records after the fact. Please contact NFCB if you have questions.
