Emergency Alert System
Oregon supports the Emergency Alert System by providing support to the State Emergency Communications Committee which is responsible for developing EAS plans statewide.
  • The Emergency Alert System replaces the old Emergency Broadcast System (EBS). 
  • Under EBS all alert messages were originated at the State level.  
  • With EAS, messages are originated by local authorities, though the State or Federal Government can still access the system if the need arises.

Federal Government EAS information:

  • 47 CFR, Part 11 concerns national EAS policy and procedures.  
  • EAS Handbook is provided by the US Government, and is intended for broadcasters involved in the EAS program.
