      The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a national warning system in the United States put into place on January 1, (approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in November ), when it replaced the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), which in turn replaced is jointly coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency . U.S. bomber and missile forces went on full alert, and the emergency command post, known as the “doomsday plane,” took to the air. The incident was one of the most dangerous false alarms of the nuclear age, but it was not the first or the last. Within months, three more U.S. system malfunctions set off the U.S. early-warning systems.
