FEMA is conducting a nationwide Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) test on Sept. 20 at 12:18 p.m. our time (2:18 p.m. EDT).
This means your cell phone and all cell phones around you should make unusual tones and display an alert message on your home screen.
Be aware that any press conferences held at that time will be interrupted.
No action during the test is required on your part. Just pay attention.
However, in advance of the test, please let your staff and partners know this is coming.
