TV, Radio Stations To Broadcast Nationwide Emergency Test Wednesday

View Comments

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - All across the country on Wednesday, television and radio stations will broadcast the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS).

At 1 p.m. Central time on November 9, broadcast stations will interrupt regular programming with a one-minute test notification.

The broadcast will contain the words “This is a test.”

The test will be similar to the familiar local EAS tests.

After the test, stations will return to regular programming.

Public safety officials are conducting the test to make sure the nationwide alert system works the way it is supposed to.  The system is regularly tested at the local level across the country.  Wednesday’s broadcast will be the first nationwide test.
