EAS PSA Scripts

I liked the PSA ideas played in Friday's web meeting. NAB said, as I recall, that there were scripts on their website but I can't find them. Maybe this website would be a good place to post PSA ideas/scripts or links to them. Then we can "borrow" and/or adapt ideas from them.

    We can post the scripts here, but not the audio file.

    Thanks, Manny. I understand the space constraints you might have here that would preclude audio and video files but text files would be great as would be links.

    We uploaded the script content to the FEMA IPAWS Nationwide EAS Test Page: On November 9th at approximately 2:00 PM Eastern, your State or Territory will participate in a Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System.

    It will be heard on the radio and seen on local, cable, and satellite TV.

    As Federal, State, tribal, territorial and local governments prepare for and test their capabilities, this event serves as a reminder that everyone should establish an emergency preparedness kit and emergency plan for themselves, their families, communities, and businesses.

    Visit FEMA dot gov for more information.

    Can you post the ACTUAL text from the National EAN ? Would like to see how often the "TEST" message is repeated in the 3 minute message and reference the actual text.

    So I do not get rusty I regularly use the DMO (Demo/Practice) code every time I test our outdoor warning sirens.

    Here is the text I use for for that test.

    Sedgwick County Emergency Management will be testing the Outdoor Warning Sirens at Noon Today.

    Sedgwick County outdoor warning sirens are tested every Monday at 12:00 PM (Noon) except when threatening weather is present and Holidays.

    The Alert Mode is a steady tone used for Tornado warning, The Attack Mode is a classic Rise and Fall sound used for Air Attack Warning in times of war. Each mode is tested for about 2 minutes.

    Outdoor warning sirens are designed to be an early warning device primarily for persons who are outside away from the television and/or radio.

    Remember, when The Outdoor Warning Sirens Sound, Take cover, Tune in, Take action.

    Emergency Management officials highly recommend citizens keep a NOAA weather alert radio in their homes, preferable in the bedroom, with a tone alert for those times when you are not monitoring public media.
