On November 9, 2011, the Federal Communications Commission will conduct a national test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) over television and radio. The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless Technologies (Wireless RERC) is conducting a survey of people with visual and hearing impairment in order to understand the effectiveness of EAS. We are conducting two surveys – one survey before the national EAS test (pre-test survey) and one survey after the national EAS test (post-test survey). Please take a few minutes to complete the pretest survey. After the EAS test we will release the post-test survey.
