Will Robedee, CBI Executive Director

The  FCC, in conjunction with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS).  This will have an impact on all FCC licensed stations that participate in EAS.   If this test applies to you, pay attention.

You must complete the 2017 ETRS Form One on or before August 28, 2017.  The date is important to note because many school stations may not be on-the-air on that date or may be operating on limited schedules.  The rules do not include any provisions (to my non-lawyer knowledge) for exceptions.

The form is a little tricky to complete and requires information you may not have at your fingertips, so the earlier you start to complete the form, the better.  Do not wait to complete this form.  The sooner the better.

If you have changes to your EAS info, you must submit those changes or before August 28, 2017.

One the day of the test, you must report your information your information on ETRS Form Two.  This form will likely ask you about what you received and what you rebroadcast.  It may ask for additional information concerning the equipment you use.
