Don't panic! FEMA urges Americans not to worry as national alert system is tested


  • First-ever nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System to occur on November 9 at 2:00pm EST
  • Will last up to three-and-a-half minutes


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are spearheading an aggressive public education campaign reminding Americans not to panic when they lose television and radio service for a few minutes on Wednesday during a test of the Emergency Alert System.
Although the public alert mechanism is decades old and often tested and used at the local level, it has never before been tested on a nationwide scale.
This first-ever test will occur at 2:00pm EST on Wednesday, November 9 and will occur simultaneously across the U.S. and its territories, lasting up to three-and-a-half-minutes.

This being tested now, just increases my paranoia...

It's not paranoia; there is NO reason for a nationally controlled central command to be able to override all local and national broadcasting - no emergency, nothing that the media and internet would not cover. Only reason for this is for some wannabe antiChrist to say, like the Borg, Resistance is futile!
And that is when we locate whatever targets have been assigned.

The last time I experienced a Nation wide emergency drill was back when I was in grade school during the Cuban missile crisis.
I ducked, covered under my l'il desk then walked home from school to record how long it took me to get there.
Are we in danger of getting nuked "again" under a democratic President? If so why?

Yeah, I don't know what happened - I even verified it on the DHS website.
