A Nationwide test of both the wireless and broadcast-based EAS was scheduled for tomorrow, September 20 (see our article here). It has now been postponed until October 3 presumably due to the continuing issues following Hurricane Florence (see notices from the FCC here and from FEMA here). In addition to the postponement of the test, the FCC announced the dates for the filing of the reports that are due after the test. EAS Participants shall file the “day of test” information sought by ETRS Form Two at or before 11:59 PM EDT on October 3. EAS Participants shall file the more detailed post-test data sought by ETRS Form Three on or before November 19. Note the changes and be ready to participate in the rescheduled test and to file the post-test reports.
