FEMA Shares “EAS Sound-alike” File

It’s available on the EAS participant website to use with PSAs August 16, 2017

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.
