Emergency Broadcast System Test (1981)
Here's another Emergency Broadcast System test that aired on WMAQ Channel 5 one Saturday afternoon.
"This is a test. For the next sixty seconds this station will conduct a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. This is only a test.
This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. The broadcasters of your area in voluntary cooperation with the FCC and other authorities have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of an emergency.
If this had been an actual emergency, you would have been instructed where to tune in your area for news and official information. This concludes this test of the Emergency Broadcast System.
Voiceover by Ed Grennan.
