UPDATED: FEMA Finalizes EAS Best Practices Guide
FEMA has finalized its EAS best
practices guide; and it has now posted it in PDF form.
Radio World reported last week that FEMA was
putting finishing touches on the guide, which includes specific instructions
for alert originators and broadcasters.
The final version includes
basic setup and configuration for radio and television EAS encoders/decoders
from Burk, Digital Alert Systems, Gorman-Redlich, Sage models 1822 and 3644,
TFT and Trilithic.
FEMA intends to place the guide
on its website as well as discuss
remaining details for the upcoming Nov. 9 national test during a webinar this Thursday, Oct. 13,
beginning at 12:30 Eastern.
