Digital Television Transition



On February 17, 2009 all full-power broadcast television stations in the United States will stop broadcasting on analog airwaves and begin broadcasting only in digital.

Millions of American residents depend on television as a reliable source of information, to include emergency alerts and warnings. Citizen Corps Councils (of which CERT is a part) are urged to inform members of your community -- especially older adults and homebound individuals -- of the digital transition to ensure they take any necessary action to receive and view over the air digital signals.
