National EAS ETRS Forms Due August 2018

It’s nearly National EAS Testing time. The FCC is getting ready for the 2018 National EAS Test. All radio and television broadcasters, including LPFM radio stations are required to fill out the ETRS form one by August 27. I can prepare and file the three forms for you for only $150 per station. 903-270-1500

If you are doing this yourself, The FCC will need identifying information on a participant’s location, its EAS equipment and monitoring assignments, and contact information for EAS purposes. Form One requires each EAS participant to file a separate Form One for each EAS decoder, EAS encoder, or unit combining such decoder and encoder functions.

Resilient public alert and warning tools are essential to save lives and protect property during times of national, state, regional, and local emergencies. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is used by alerting authorities to send warnings via broadcast, cable, satellite, and wireline communications pathways. EAS participants, which consist of broadcast, cable, satellite, and wireless providers, are the stewards of this important public service in close partnership with alerting officials at all levels of government. The EAS is also used when all other means of alerting the public are unavailable, providing an added layer of resiliency to the suite of available emergency communication tools.

The EAS Best Practices Guide was created in partnership with EAS participants to support incremental improvements by providing basic guidelines for EAS operation and maintenance.
