FEMA Shares “EAS Sound-alike” File

It’s available on the EAS participant website to use with PSAs

WASHINGTON � The Federal Emergency Management Agency says an EAS sound header for PSA support is now available online.

FEMA�s Al Kenyon wrote a letter to the FCC, explaining that the file includes �non-functional sound-alike EAS data headers, Attention Signal and EOM data bursts� and is intended �for use in educational public service announcements.�

The FEMA IPAWS Lab had produced the audio file earlier and has now made it available to EAS participants, as of early August, as FEMA had committed to do in a November 2016 meeting of the FCC�s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau.
