On November 9, 2011, FEMA successfully initiated the Emergency Action Notification (EAN), the live code used for Presidential activations of the nationwide EAS.
The FCC subsequently has collected and analyzed thousands of reports, including some that came in as recently as November 2012, held
discussions with FEMA and other stakeholders to analyze the data contained in these reports, and
participated in webinars and other fora where we discussed best practices that would help address some of
the issues uncovered by the test.
