TV and Radio Stations that Broadcast Emergency Alert Messages

NEW! In April 2017, the Commission directed wireless service providers to implement a wireless public alerting system on their networks: Wireless service providers must join the National Public Alerting System.

The map below shows you which FM radio, AM radio and over-the-air (OTA) television stations are broadcasting emergency alerts as of the end of December 2015.

There are also subscription-based service providers that distribute emergency alerts, including (but not limited to) cable TV, satellite TV, video-on-demand (VOD) and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) service providers.

How do I use this map?

You can zoom in and out of the map using the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the top left-hand side of the map.

In the top bar, you can show either all stations (Show all), TV stations only, AM stations only or FM stations only.

On the right-hand side, there is a search box. You can search (pulldown menu) by Place Name (the default option) or by station type (TV, AM or FM). Enter your Place Name (or station type) into the search box and press Enter or click on the magnifying glass to search.

The bottom right-hand side of the map shows you the legend, which will show information about all stations broadcasting emergency alert messages.  If you move the cursor over a station on the map, you will see information specific for that station.
