National EAS test on Wednesday September 28, 2016 @ 1120 AM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA),l in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct a mandatory nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday September 28, 2016 @ 1120 AM to verify the delivery and broadcast, and assess the readiness for distribution of a national level test message. 

The EAS test is made available to radio, television, cable, and direct broadcast satellite systems and is scheduled to last approximately 1 minute.  The message of the test will be similar to the regular monthly test message of EAS normally heard/seen by the public:  "This is a national test of the Emergency Alert System.  This is only a test."

FEMA is taking pains not to cause any unneccessary public concern by notifying local public safety agencies.  The City of Signal Hill, in turn, is notifying residents and businesses to expect this nationwide test.
