FCC EAS Update
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that all stations are required to use the Emergency Alert System (EAS) Test Reporting System (ETRS) to report on the results of the past September 28 nationwide EAS test.
The deadline for the Form Three Report is today, November 14, 2016.
You will need a valid FCC Registration Number (FRN) in order to file a form using ETRS.
The process starts with registration through the FCC's COmmission REgistration System (CORES). Upon registration, you will be assigned a FCC Registration Number (FRN). This number will be used to uniquely identify you in all transactions with the FCC. Please visit CORES if you do not have an FRN, need to update your FRN profile, or need to reset your password.
The next step is to access the FCC website where you can register for the ETRS. After successfully completing the ETRS Registration Page, you will be e-mailed your ETRS account credentials and a link to the ETRS log-in page, where you can then access Form Three—the FCC November 14 report requirement.
