WTF - Nationwide emergency alert system test for the USA 10/9/11
Nationwide emergency alert system test for the USA

Published: 05 August, 2011


The first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System will take place November 9, 2011 at 2pm (EST).

The purpose of the test is to assess the reliability and effectiveness of the EAS as a public alert mechanism.
The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a media communications-based alerting system that is designed to transmit emergency alerts and warnings to the American public at the national, state and local levels.

The EAS has been in existence since 1994, and its precursor, the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), began in 1963. Television and radio broadcasters, satellite radio and satellite television providers, as well as cable television and wireline video providers all participate in the system (collectively, EAS Participants). EAS Participants broadcast thousands of alerts and warnings to the American public each year regarding weather threats, child abductions, and many other types of emergencies. As such, the EAS will continue to function as one key component of a national alert and warning system that will provide alerts over multiple communications platforms, including mobile communications devices.

Yeah, you could be right, but they are not the largest bank of America and also named the Bank of America for nothing.

That red 11 bigger than the rest, signifying the year, kinda freaked me out!
