    Default [NEWS] EAS - Nationwide Warning

    FEMA, FCC ANNOUNCE NATIONWIDE TEST OF THE EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM

    Similar to local Emergency Alert System Tests, this Test is Scheduled to Take Place on November 9, 2011



    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). The nationwide test will occur on Wednesday, November 9 at 2 p.m. eastern standard time and may last up to three and a half minutes.



    The EAS is a national alert and warning system established to enable the President of the United States to address the American public during emergencies. NOAA's National Weather Service, governors and state and local emergency authorities also use parts of the system to issue more localized emergency alerts.



    Similar to local EAS tests that are already conducted frequently, the nationwide test will involve broadcast radio and television stations, cable television, satellite radio and television services and wireline video service providers across all states and the territories of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa.


    While various components of the system are tested regularly, there has never been a nationwide, top-to-bottom, test of the system. Also, to date, the EAS has not been used to deliver a national-level or Presidential alert. It is surely interesting...

    It could be due to the fact that, a 1,312-foot asteroid will soon pass within 201,000 miles of Earth, a distance closer than the Earth’s distance from the moon. Sometime during the 8-9th of November 2011. Asteroid 2005 YU 55 - Is it's name.

    Huh, why? It's trajectory has been measured with a very high level of certainty, it will not hit the planet.

    It's just an assumption, I really don't know why they are doing a Nationwide EAS warning. It has never been done before. Some people say it's due to, YU55.

    I just thought this was interesting news is all.

    Are they issuing a nationwide warning for a test? Won't that cause people to panic?

    No, This is why they tell people ahead of time that it's a test. The Panic will insue after the real deal happens whilst stating -This is NOT a test.- Second, yes the asteroid won't hit Earth; but in light of the asteroid, it's come to their attention that the system probably should be tested. We have a system if we don't even know it works. Plus it should be done for all the same reasons as the local tests.

    This isn't news, actually (not new news, anyway).

    FEMA and the FCC announced the test MONTHS ago (back in June) and it has nothing to do with the asteroid. It is of no threat to us and to issue a test of a warning system based on an asteroid that is not going to affect us in anyway (except for some pretty cool pictures) would be a little silly.

    Plus, the asteroid would have passed both the Earth and the Moon by the time they started the test.
    This is my war face.

    This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.

    Wait what? You say why yourself in your post! What part of nationwide test is so hard to comprehend?! They're testing the goddamn system! If there was an actual emergency, they would just use the system to inform people, not announce that they're going to test it months earlier and then under the guise of the test reveal an actual emergency.

    I remember hearing about this a while ago. It's interesting, but I don't listen to the radio and I don't watch TV, so I doubt I'll get it. I just hope the people in my apartment complex don't make a riot out of it. e_e

    Same.

    Also, an asteroid supposedly passed pretty close to earth back in 1989. Most people didn't find out about it until a dew days later.

    "Asclepius passed by Earth on March 22, 1989, at a distance of 680,000 km (0.68 Gm). Although this exceeds the Moon's orbital radius, the close pass received attention at that time, especially since the asteroid passed through the exact position of Earth only six hours earlier. "On the cosmic scale of things, that was a close call," said Dr. Henry Holt. Geophysicists estimate that collision with Asclepius would release energy comparable to the explosion of a 600 megaton atomic bomb.

    Subsequent discoveries revealed that a whole class of such objects exists, and that an object the size of the one that just missed Earth in March 1989, probably comes by undetected once every two or three years. Asclepius will continue to approach Earth within 30 Gm a dozen times each century. The next pass to come within 1 Gm will not take place until 2189."

    ---Wikipedia[
    The Gm is some sort of distance measure, I believe...

    True, true, but they informed people in the news, people in the news informed people on here, and people on here make a thread to inform others like you. So on and so forth until everyone knows. Then when the warning test does go off, everyone should know, and those that don't will be told during the course of the test. It'll happen just like with the local warning tests. Only on a boarder scale. Never see someone freak out into a massive panick with the local tests, just raging because it cut off they're fav. show, song, sports game, etc.

    Not to the naked eye, but with some kit it should be possible to observe it:

During the close approach, the asteroid should reach about apparent magnitude 11, and may be visible to expert observers using high-end binoculars with an objective lens of 80mm or larger. Since the gibbous moon will interfere with the viewing, amateur observers trying to visually locate the asteroid will require a telescope with an aperture of 6 inches (15 centimeters) or larger

Only on a boarder scale. Never see someone freak out into a massive panick with the local tests, just raging because it cut off they're fav. show, song, sports game, etc.
    Never witnessed any local test either... And quite honestly even with all of that people still will not know and possibly react if it were on that grand of scale. Remember the small panic to listeners listening to a broadcast of War of the Worlds on the radio a long time ago. Some people really believed it to be true.

    Yes, but they only warned them at the beginning. People tuning in late missed that warning and they didn't re-issue it during the broadcast.

    Well, actually they tell you what the warning is at the beginning and end. Test or not. Plus most of the local channels I know of will dispaly any and all weather advisories and warnings on the bottom of the screen, after the warning has been issued.
    Good ol' Dogs never Die, they just keepin on livin' till their time comes.

    Ha, oddly enough this is my first time hearing it. Granted, I don't watch much TV or listen to radio.

    It's not that hard to comprehend. It's the fact, that this has never been done before on a, Nation Wide Level. There's never been a national activation of EAS, even on 9/11. It'll be the first time you hear "This is the President speaking", on an EAS test. I just find it interesting is all.
    Again this is all news for me, for the past several months I've been in and out of training schools and boot camp.
