On November 9th there will be a Nation-wide test of the EAS! That system stems in part from E.O. 12472 as amended and the following:
Executive Order 13407
Public Alert and Warning System
- Signed: June 26, 2006
- Federal Register page and date: 71 FR 36975, June 28, 2006
- Amends: EO 12472, April 3, 1984
There is technical research and analysis in existence of the usage of the terms (1) Alerting; (2) Warning; (3) Notification; (4) Call-up!
The Partnership for Public Warning produced a National Warning Strategy in the last decade. It is available as a baseline document VACATION LANE BLOG at http://www.vlg338.blogspot.com!
The NOVEMBER 9th test is described as a test of the WARNING system!
