EBS Emergency Broadcast System

developed (the Civ-Alert Broadcast System) by the State of Hawaii Civil Defense Division and the Hawaii Association of Broadcasters in 1960. Adopted for broadcasters nationwide in 1963 by the FCC; it was named the Emergency Broadcast System to replace the obsolete CONELRAD system. There is no faster, cheaper, more effective warning system of any kind than the EBS and the EAS.
