EAS: The Emergency Alert System (EAS) addresses the American public via TV, radio and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radios. In addition to federal agencies, state and local authorities may use the EAS to send emergency information and AMBER (missing children) alerts.
