May 12, 2016 at 11:16 AM (PT)
The FCC has released its Emergency Alert System compliance guide for small entities, and the release includes a few items added by the Sixth Report and Order.
The changes involve adopting the six-zeroes code -- 000000 -- as the national location code; the requirement that EAS participants’ equipment be capable of processing a National
Periodic Test (NPT) event code; requiring EAS participants to file identifying information and information online about the performance of their EAS equipment on the day of the next nationwide EAS test; and requiring participants to comply with minimum accessibility rules.
