The FCC and FEMA will be conducting a nation-wide test of the Emergency Alert System on Wednesday, November 9, at 1 p.m. Central. This test is being conducted to assess the reliability and effectiveness of the system as a way to alert the public during nation-wide emergencies.

As this is the first nation-wide test, it is important that everyone understands that this is just a test, and not an emergency.
