State EAS Required Monthly Tests (RMT)
Transmission Dates/Times

The times shown are the origination times of state tests. The Required Monthly Test (RMT) is designed to check the State EAS Web links. The Kansas Emergency Communication Committee has set forth that the RMT will be a statewide test. The RMT is prescheduled and will be initiated from the Kansas Department of Emergency Management using the iPAWS system. All stations need to rebroadcast the RMT as soon as possible but not later than 15 minutes after receipt. Stations are reminded that their EAS receiver must be programmed to receive all of the codes listed in the Kansas State Plan. If you need a copy of the Plan, click here.

Statewide Tornado Drill for 2022 is set for March 8 at 10:00 a.m. However, in 2022 the live event EAS codes will not be used. Instead each office will use a RWT which is the routine weekly test message that is sent to each weather radio. This message only accesses the weather radio’s receiver and alert system and does not access the EAS system. Radio stations aren’t required to carry NWS emergency messages, including the Tornado Drill test.

To ensure proper logging of state EAS Tests we suggest you furnish a copy of this schedule to your Traffic department and post this information in the control room.
