FEMA’s First Test Alert 11/9/2011

FEMA, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will conduct the first nationwide Emergency Alert System (EAS) Test on November 9, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern on major broadcast outlets.

Take that time to assess how you receive emergency notifications and how you and your coworkers, family, and friends should react in case of a real emergency.
