PSA

I was wondering about all the "remember, it's just a test" commercials that I've seen on TV lately. Now it makes sense...what doesn't make sense to me is the lack of a message. Why isn't there a message?

Please take a moment to review the following and share with everyone;







FEMA Emergency Alert System Test - November 9th






Please be advised of an upcoming national emergency alert test that FEMA will be conducting. Please forward this to others in hopes of eliminating, or at least substantially reducing, unnecessary anxiety related to this event.






On November 9th FEMA, DHS and FCC will conduct the first national test of the Nationwide Emergency Alert System test. This test will kick off at 2:00 p.m. (EST). The test will be nationwide, running concurrently across all time zones.





The test will run on all radio and TV bands and the message will run for three minutes. The fear is that the lack of an explanation message might create panic. Please share this information with your family and friends so they are aware of the test.






Below are two Web sites that will provide more information.

I join Liberty in thanking you, Robin. What a lovely treat! I'm always so delighted at the friendliness and generosity of bloggers.
I read about some of the awful things that are done on the internet, but yet, I experience things like this. Wonderful.
I'm going to re-post your information concerning the emergency alert.
Thanks again.
