 The Emergency Alert System (EAS)

The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a method to notify the public. Selected radio and television stations throughout your county or area serve as EAS stations. Emergency officials can activate the system to relay warnings and vital information to the public about what emergency actions to take.

Emergency information will be repeated over these stations until the “all clear” message has been given. The EAS will explain the emergency response level and will tell you what you should do (shelter in place, evacuate, etc.)

The Emergency Alert System can address the entire nation on short notice in case of a serious threat or national emergency. Emergency Alert Stations in West Virginia include:
