at 2:20 p.m. EDT, FEMA will conduct a live test of the EAS. All EAS Participants are required to participate in this nationwide test. The following EAS message will be disseminated via the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS): THIS IS A TEST of the National Emergency Alert System. This system was developed by broadcast and cable operators in voluntary cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, and local authorities to keep you informed in the event of an emergency. If this had been an actual emergency an official message would have followed the tone alert you heard at the start of this message. A similar wireless emergency alert test message has been sent to all cell phones in the nation.
