Help Us Spread the Word – On November 9, “This is Only a Test”
Over the last few weeks, we have highlighted the upcoming nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS), which is now
less than ten days away. The test will take place on Wednesday, November 9th at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. This system, commonly tested at the local level, will be tested across the entire country.
Our priority here at FEMA is to ensure all members of the public are aware of this test next week and understand that it is only a test – so we are counting on you to help spread the word in your communities, with your co-coworkers, neighbors, friends, and loved ones. To help support this, FEMA has created a couple of videos that you can use to help explain what this test is and what people can expect.
