Nationwide Emergency Test Wednesday 2pm, Don’t Be Alarmed

November 9th 2011

At 2pm the Federal Communications Commission along with other governmental agencies, will issue a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. The test will appear on television networks with a verbal message saying it is only a test, or on the radio with a similar warning. However, the screen may or may not give that information. There is no need to be alarmed. The test could last 30 seconds, up to several minutes.
