SEPTEMBER 1 DEADLINE FOR STATE EAS PLAN COMPLIANCE

NBA Members,

 

Please see the following important message from SECC Chairman Rod Zeigler:

 

The Nebraska State Emergency Communications Committee (SECC) has released the new 2018 State EAS Plan for all EAS participants.  This plan is the outcome of a directive from the FCC.

 

You can find the new plan and a list of important FAQ’s here: www.ne-eas.org   We will issue another edition of this plan in the near future that simply amplifies some of the subjects contained in this plan as well as correcting some misspellings and other very minor items that do not change the overall plan that was just released. We will advise you when that edition of the plan is released.

 

All FCC-licensed stations must be in compliance with this plan by September 1, 2018.  Some stations may have to purchase a receiver or antenna to become compliant.  In the FAQ’s, you will find recommendations for your consideration.  NBA engineers have a tradition of helping one another so feel free to contact your colleagues at other stations to share ideas and suggestions.    

 

Thank you very much for participating in the Emergency Alert System.

 

Regards,

 

Rod Zeigler

Chairman, Nebraska State Emergency Communications Committee
