Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test Set For 2 P.M. Today

TV Test Pattern
Flickr User ViZZZual.com

At 2p.m. today, remember: this is only a test. The first ever nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System will happen today, 2p.m. EST, on all radio and TV stations across the country. The original test was set to be three minutes long, but has been shortened to about 30 seconds.

According to FEMA, it’s part of their “ongoing efforts to keep our country and communities safe during emergencies.”

My inner radio dork is pretty excited to be part of a first ANYTHING in broadcasting, but we can understand the annoyance of the interruption.

Just remember, this is only a test…and you don’t even have to study!

Comment below: Do you think this is a good idea?
