The National EAS (Emergency Alert System) will be conducting a test this Wednesday, November 9th at 1pm local time.
This will be the first nationwide test. We always participate in the state-level monthly tests but no review of the entire system has ever been conducted until now.
So that this doesn't come as a complete surprise, we're airing a 15-second public service announcement to let viewers know the test is coming. The announcement states there will be a test and that no one should be alarmed because... you guessed it... it's only a test.
