EAS Basics

Instructional Method: LIVE Thursday, April 23, 2020, 2 p.m. ET

Overview

How much do you know about those bursts of data that fire off every week on your station? Do terms like CAP, RWT, RMT, EAN, EAT, EOM, and others make your head spin? Most broadcasters understand the fact that they are legally required by the FCC to install and maintain Emergency Alert System equipment, but what do you need to know in order to ensure compliance with these FCC regulations? This session will cover the basics of what EAS is and isn’t, as well as what you need to know in the role of a chief operator responsible for monitoring and maintaining the system. We’ll focus primarily on radio broadcast applications of EAS, but will touch on television applications as well!
