The 2017 nationwide test will assess the reliability and effectiveness of the EAS, with a particular
emphasis on testing FEMA’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS), the integrated
gateway through which common alerting protocol-based (CAP-based) EAS alerts are disseminated to
EAS Participants. The test message will clearly state that the alert is only a test of the EAS. FEMA’s
alert will be transmitted in English and Spanish and include both audio and the text of the test message,
which can be used to populate an accessible video crawl. The primary test date is scheduled for
September 27, 2017, at 2:20 PM EDT. If conditions on the day of the test require the rescheduling of the
test, a secondary test date is scheduled for October 4, 2017. All EAS Participants are required to
participate in this nationwide test.2
