Locals check your phones! Don’t be alarmed if you get an emergency alert on your phone this afternoon…because it’s only a test.
FEMA will be conducting a nationwide test of its emergency alert system today, sending messages to radio, TV, and cell phones. That means your phone might receive a message reading “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” The test is scheduled to be conducted at 2:20 pm EST.
We are monitoring the development of Tropical Storm #Fred. If you’re in its path, now is the time to #BeReady:— FEMA (@fema) August 11, 2021
