Can someone tell me what's up with all the EAS tests. There've been 7 of them in the last 24 hrs; That I know of. And 5 of those have been done in the last 3-5 hrs. What is that all about?

I apologize for the inconvenience this caused. That was not a problem with your equipment. Many others reported the same issue while watching the basketball game. This should be taken care of now. If you are still receiving these, I need you to send me a private message.

EAS Constantly Activating

Message 5 of 13
(3,270 Views)

Three nights ago the EAS test screen and warning siren went off 10 times on all of our TV's - about every 20 minutes or so.

 

It has continuted to go off at least once a day (last night at 1:27 am while I was up late).

 

This can't be the way it is designed - is it something to do with my system?

It happened to me 10 times on Tuesday night - and again last night at least once. Customer Support blamed the government...

 

I hope Anthony can help!

It's not Verizon's responsibility to violate the law.

Storch1,

 

EAS testing is not controlled by any company.  They are regulated by the FCC.  If they schedule the testing that is when the testing is done.  We are researching this issue for your area to see if there is a problem. We will continue to update you.  Thanks Tonya D

There was video configuring EAS testing for the equipment maintenance on 5/10, 5/11 and 5/12 during the maintenance window.  On 5/10 EAS testing ran 10 times. We do apologize for any inconvenience.  Thanks Tonya D.
