Not really. You can choose to be a non-participating station and just sign off “in the event of a national emergency”. Having the equipment is mandatory, participating is an option.

Subject: [CRTech] A lighter note about the National EAS Alert

 

Having spent 15 years working in radio and TV I have heard the alert more times than I care to remember. Today was the day I really listened to the wording of the alert.  It say "in voluntary cooperation with the FCC."   I had to laugh at the voluntary part of that.  If you decide not to cooperate you get fined and could loose your license.
