"National Emergency Alert Test Results: FEMA and FCC Conducted Successful National Test"
FEMA and the FCC conducted a national test of emergency alert systems to assess their effectiveness. The test was successful, and FEMA is now conducting a survey to gather information to enhance and expand the system.
Today, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) conducted a nationwide test to evaluate the effectiveness of the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) and the Emergency Alert System (EAS) in delivering emergency messages to the public. This comprehensive test involved transmitting a message through the WEA to cell phones and through the EAS to radio and television stations.
The test was a success, as all cell carriers participating in the WEA received the alert, ensuring that a wide range of cellular phone users were reached. Furthermore, the EAS test alert was processed and made available to broadcasters, allowing radio and television stations to relay the emergency message to their audiences.
To gather valuable information about the reach of the WEA Alert Message, FEMA is conducting a survey. This data will play a crucial role in enhancing and expanding the WEA system, benefiting not only FEMA but also other stakeholders such as the FCC and public safety officials.
Determining the population reached by the EAS test will be based on data collected by the EAS Test Reporting System. FEMA and the FCC will carefully analyze the results, a process that may take approximately four months to complete.
