FEMA, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will conduct the first nationwide Emergency Alert System (EAS) Test.

It will take place Wednesday at 2 p.m.

Broadcasters, cable television systems, and satellite radio providers are all required by law to participate in the test.

Among those we can confirm are WCBS/Channel 2, WABC/Channel 7, and public TV stations WNET/Channel 13 and WLIW/Channel 21.

Due to budgetary concerns, NJN’s days were numbered. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced last month that WNET, the parent company of Channel 13 and Channel 21/WLIW would handle all programming and services under a five-year deal.
