From the County News Center: Televisions, radios and some cellphones will receive a test message as part of a nationwide emergency alert systems test on Wednesday, Aug. 11.
As in previous emergency alert systems tests, there is no need for concern for cellphone users or anyone viewing the alerts on television or hearing the tone on the radio, and there is no action that needs to be taken.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission will test its Emergency Alert System with television and radio channels between 11:20 and 11:50 a.m. Some consumer cellphones whose subscribers opted into the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) tests will also receive the special tone and test message. (If you do not receive an emergency alert on your cellphone, you may want to enable WEA. On an iPhone, go to Settings, Notifications, and turn on Government Alerts.)
