following order: first, Local Area Messages; second, State Messages;
and third, National Information Center (NIC) Messages.
(c) Key EAS sources (NP, LP, SP and SR) and Participating National (PN)
sources that remain on the air during a National emergency must carry
Presidential Messages "live" at the time of transmission or immediately
upon receipt. Activation of the National level EAS must preempt State
and Local Area EAS operation.
(d) During a national emergency, the facilities of all EAS Participants
must be reserved exclusively for distribution of Presidential Messages.
