Details are starting to come in about the next national EAS Test will be held on August 7 (backup, August 21) at 2:20PM EDT.
This test will be different than previous tests as IPAWS will not be used. The tests will originate from the Primary Entry Point (PEP) stations. This test will focus on over-the-air reception of alerts in the event that the internet is not available. This test will use the all-zeros (000000) FIPS code.
