Feds take local stations by surprise...1/6/99
by Mitch Battros, ECTV

It appears the Federal Government, mainly the Emergency
Management Office, surprised local stations around the nation
with the strange and new (E.A.S.) Emergency Action Service
announcement that read "A CIVIL AUTHORITY HAS ISSUED A REQUIRED
TEST" which was scheduled for 30 minutes as opposed to the 30
second test we are all familiar with. It was reported by James
Heecock, Program Director of the local NBC affiliate KING 5
television in Seattle, Washington "This was a new Emergency
Announcement System that was implemented in January 1998. It
took us by surprise. It appears they want to WHIP US INTO
SHAPE".

Similar stories from ABC, CBS, and FOX came in. John Walters,
Engineer Director of CBS affiliate KIRO channel 7, also in
Seattle stated "part of the new system allows E.A.S. to occur
over cable stations without notice, which was not in effect
until this month. This was part of the problem and what caught
us off guard ".

Having spoke with other stations in the area as well as emails
from all over the nation, it did in deed catch many affiliates
unprepared. Many questions still go unanswered. 1) Is there an
increase threat to our nation, whether it be Y2K, Earthquakes,
Volcanoes, or Terrorist Threats. One thing is for sure, we have
not seen the last of an ongoing intense effort to increase
notification of disaster, in perhaps our very near future.
