Hello fellow freeform friends,
This is a public service announcement from your friendly neighborhood
freeform radio station...
Tomorrow, Tuesday 11/8, will be the first ever nation-wide test of the the
emergency alert system (EAS).
This test will be at 2PM Eastern time (EST).
The test should last about 1 minute, and is different from the standard
weekly/monthly EAS tests we are all familiar with in two ways:
1. It is a nation-wide activation and will be broadcast simultaneously
across all stations nationally (radio & TV).
2. It will use a "live" code (that used during an actual emergency) This
will cause some broadcasters to indicate that there is an actual emergency,
but never fear this is only a test.
Here's to readiness,
