Emergency Alert System

The Emergency Alert System is a national warning system in the United States put into place on January 1, 1997, when it replaced the Emergency Broadcast System, which in turn replaced CONELRAD. It is jointly coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Communications Commission and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The EAS regulations and standards are governed by the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau of the FCC. As with its predecessors, the system is primarily designed to allow the president to address the country via all radio and television stations, in the event of a national emergency. Despite this, neither the system nor its predecessors have been used in this manner, due to the ubiquity of news coverage in these situations. In practice, it is more commonly used to distribute information regarding imminent threats to public safety, such as severe weather situations, AMBER Alerts of child abductions, and other civic emergencies.
