These are the tones (aka Attention Signals) from the Emergency Alert System in the United States. These are high-quality and realistic, ideal for making EAS mocks/scenarios.

This audio file includes all the tones and beeps you hear in real-life EAS transmissions:

-SAME Headers, which are the first three long screechy beeps played at the beginning of EAS transmissions, and are coded with data about the emergency including the affected counties, when it will expire, the event type, and who issued it.

-Two-Tone Attention Signal, the fourth beep you hear that kind of sounds like it's from a telephone.

-End Of Message (EOM) tones, which are the three short screechy beeps played at the end of EAS transmissions.

The voice-spoken message (Text-To-Speech or human) is put between the EOM tones and the Two-Tone Attention Signal. [Not included]

The SAME Headers are valid and decode into a Civil Emergency Message for Minnehaha County SD, so please DO NOT BROADCAST THIS SOUND OVER THE AIR, as it is highly illegal and may falsely activate the Emergency Alert System. Use and/or possession of these tones are completely legal as long as they are not broadcasted (played over Television, radio, etc.).
