FEMA to conduct nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System

Post Date:09/06/2018

FEMA logo, blueOn September 20 at 12:18 p.m. local time, FEMA will conduct a test the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) System. Most cell phones will receive an alert at the same time.

This is only a test and no action is needed.

The national WEA system is used to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones. It allows customers whose wireless provider participates in WEA and who own a WEA compatible wireless phone to receive geo-targeted alerts of imminent threats to safety in their area through unique tones and vibration. The national WEA test will use the same special tone and vibration. (source: FEMA)
