Emergency Alert System

Posted on Wednesday, May 22, 2019

The Cedar Falls Utilities Cable TV Emergency Alert System (EAS) is currently unavailable due to equipment failure. CFU TV customers will not receive on-screen emergency alerts. The system is being repaired and CFU will restore the EAS as soon as possible. 

The Emergency Alert System is used by alerting authorities to send warnings via broadcast, cable, satellite, and wireline communications pathways. The system is typically used by state and local authorities to deliver important emergency information such as AMBER (missing children) alerts and emergency weather information targeted to a specific area.

While the Emergency Alert System is unavailable to CFU TV customers, residents should rely on other sources for emergency notifications. Tune to local broadcast TV channels for severe weather information.
