EAS stations to remain on standby

FEMA has requested the primary EAS stations around the country
to continue at their current state of heightened readiness.



GREETINGS:

I HAVE BEEN DIRECTED TO MAINTAIN THE CURRENT POSTURE AT THE PRIMARY ENTRY
POINT STATIONS.

ALL TESTING OF PEP STATIONS, EQUIPMENT AND PROCEDURES IS SUSPENDED UNTIL
FURTHER NOTICE.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE THE SUSPENSION OF ALL REGIONAL, STATE, AND LOCAL TESTING
AS WELL.  THREE REASONS FOR THIS ACTION: 1) THE PUBLIC MAY MISINTERPRET THE
EAS TEST FOR A REAL EVENT,  2)  EMOTIONS ARE RUNNING VERY HIGH AT THIS TIME,
WE NEED TO PROVIDE A CALMING INFLUENCE,  3)  SHOULD THE EAS NEED TO BE
ACTIVATED, AT ANY LEVEL, THE CHANNELS OF COMMUNICATION NEED TO BE AVAILABLE
TO CARRY EMERGENCY TRAFFIC NOT TEST MESSAGES.

I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY THANKS TO ALL WHO ARE MANNING THE STATIONS.  I
KNOW IT IS A SACRIFICE, AND YOU WOULD RATHER BE WITH YOUR FAMILIES AND DEAR
ONES, BUT YOUR SERVICE TO THE NATION IS IMPORTANT AND APPRECIATED.

THANKS AGAIN FOR A JOB YOU ARE DOING VERY WELL.

PUTPRUSH SENDS

TIMOTHY L. PUTPRUSH,  FEMA PEP PROJECT MANAGER
