I heard the test for the emergency broadcast system on the radio and tv today.
The one I heard on tv seemed to be a little different. At the end of it it said:
"If this had been a real emergency alert this alert would have been for the entire state of Florida.
I don't think I've ever heard that before.

Where did there alerts play? Where are you located? How long did they last? We need to get as many people on ATS from the affected area to report any emergency broadcast activity.

This is a very important topic. Weeks ago false emergency broadcasts were issued under 'Presidential authority' in the Chicago area.

Chicago Emergency Alert System Activated Today (6/26/07) By Presidential Code:

I think we are getting very close to the big day. The day when an attack happens and the nation is transformed into a police-state.

I think they are preparing and testing the emergency systems. Like a rehearsal for their big show... they want it go exactly as planned.

If they didn't perform these tests and something DID happen, then everyone would cry.. "why didn't they warn us"


Geez, they're tests people, be glad that we have them.

I live in SW Florida, I heard the alert from another room, though, and didn't catch what was said. It was about 1:30pm. I'll keep my ears open today though. Now that I think about it, it went off twice. About 5 minutes apart. Hmmm.

I am also in Florida, SE though and usually hear the tests on Wednesdays which is the emergency broadcast test day in this area. But have not paid much attention to them.

I know that in the past there has been a specific local warning for hurricanes and not a statewide warning.

I once saw an emergency alert on CNN. 1/3 of the lower screen was black and a scrolling text bar inserted by Homeland security appeared: "This is an emergency. All citizens of New Orleans please call .....". I saw the scrolling text althoug I live in Europe. Was quite scary....

Its just a test of the system they the government put into place to warn you of disasters and tell you where to get help. This test is run monthly. I know I am a former broadcast engineer for ABC. Its required by law that this test runs monthly I might add. Nothing to see here.

as opposed to what? a global alert?

I think, and I might be wrong here, but I think that all networks on tv and radio are required to do these alerts from time to time.

I have been hearing alot of this lately and while I think it's just regular testing I have noticed that we haven't had one of these tests in Minnesota in a long while.

I wonder if the seemingly increasing tests are being conducted more in states that are potential targets?

I would be dissappointed if I didn't see/hear something related to our
government's attempt to improve the nation's security and the
communication of alerts. After all, we're spending billions of dollars on
this and I'd hate to think that it's only on wire-tapping and security
guards at airports. I wonder if they're planning a way to broadcast
national/regional alerts over the internet via the major ISP's? Many
(most?) Americans now spend more hours at the P.C. than they do
in front of the television. -cwm

Now that you mention it DDay, our city hasn't conducted the weekly
test of the emergency sirens at all this Spring/Summer. Usually, it
every Thursday, right at 10:30am. I'll be sure to listen closely in
20 minutes. (It's now 10:10am CDT). Thanks 4 the heads up!

I live in southern California and we had 2 emergency alert test messages today.
The first was at 8:30 and the second was at 8:32.

With hurricane season knocking on Florida's door, it would seem normal for Floridians to hear these tests around the clock.

I think the op is just stating that the message after the alert was strange.

We don't have regular testing of alerts where I am. I do hear Michigans alerts on the radio though.

This is my very first post here at ats. My friend turned me on to the website a week ago. Anyhow, regarding the testing, I live in a major metro are.....Kansas City. We have testing almost everynight. Just on tv, they do that beep and a crawl come across saying this is a mandatory test of the EBS. It's been like that for years. But then again, we live in tornado alley. The test everynight, around 11pm I think, is only on tv, not the radio. We also have our monthly tests, first Wednesday of every month at 11am of the outdoor sirens.

It has never said by presidential order or anything like that though.

Just chiming in here from my state.

I live in vegas and had the same emergency test message on the radio. Was it around 3PM?

Nothing new here. I live in Michigan and tests of the emergency broadcasting system have been going on for as long as I can remember. If they didn't do periodic testing then I would begin to worry.

I live in Miami. Usually all the emergency broadcast tests end with that message. Try paying attention to the next one to make sure.

Blimey it seems you lot in the USA have these sirens going and tv alerts on a monthly basis, we would be lucky in the UK to see two buses in the same week lol

It is good to hear that you get these tests, but what keeps popping up in my head is are you been "conditioned" to accept these warnings and carry on as normal.

I ask because if another "terrorist attack" happens on the scale of 9/11 or bigger, whether genuine or sadly to say generated by your own leaders, then a fair few of you might just shrug your shoulders on hearing the warnings and say it is just another test.

Question: When you hear via radio or see via tv these warnings do you do anything different or just carry on going about your business, do you assume it is another test or do you actually follow an alert procedure path.

Do you actually head for the basement or continue doing your normal day to day things?
