Emergency Alert Test October 4, 2023
On October 4, 2023, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will conduct a nationwide test of its two alerting systems: the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) system. The test will start at approximately 2:20 p.m. The purpose of this test is to ensure that the emergency alerting systems are working correctly and to identify any areas that need improvement. Residents should not panic upon hearing this test message. Please do not call 911 unless you have a true police, fire, or EMS emergency.
