The CBA maintains an EAS Committee with an AMBER Plan sub-committee. Each meets monthly. The EAS Committee produced the first state EAS plan in 1995 and it has been amended twice since then to keep it up to date with FCC rule changes. An AMBER plan was added as an attachment in January of 2002. For a copy of the Connecticut State EAS Plan and/or the AMBER attachment, email Mike Rice in the CBA office at mcrice@prodigy.net.

The FCC has moved its EAS division into the office of Homeland Security under the Enforcement Bureau. If you wish to visit the FCC EAS area for more information please click here.

Under the State Plan, Connecticut runs regular tests of EAS. To view the Connecticut State EAS Test schedule click here.

For any questions of EAS or AMBER call the CBA office 860 633-5031.
