EAS Test Reporting System

EAS Test Reporting System

Nationwide EAS Test

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in collaboration with the FCC, will conduct a nationwide test of the EAS on September 27, 2017 at 2:20 PM EDT.  If conditions on the day of the test require the rescheduling of the test, a secondary test date is scheduled for October 4, 2017.

All EAS Participants must complete the 2017 ETRS Form One on or before August 28, 2017.  Each EAS Participant should file a separate copy of Form One for each of its EAS decoders, EAS encoders, and units combining such decoder and encoder functions.

On or before 11:59 p.m., September 27, 2017, EAS Participants must submit any updates or corrections to their 2017 Form One filings and must file the “day of test” information sought by ETRS Form Two.

On or before November 13, 2017, EAS Participants must file the detailed post-test data sought by ETRS Form Three.

ETRS – Description

The ETRS is the online system in which EAS Participants must file identifying information, day-of-test data, and post-test data related to a nationwide test.  ETRS provides several new features that ease the data-entry burden on EAS Participants, encourage timely filings, and minimize input errors.

EAS Operating Handbook

EAS Operating Handbook

The EAS Operating Handbook summarizes the actions to be taken by personnel at EAS Participant facilities upon receipt of an EAN, tests, or State and Local Area alerts. A copy of the Handbook must be located at normal duty positions or EAS equipment locations when an operator is required to be on duty and be immediately available to staff responsible for authenticating messages and initiating actions.
