FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency
Tomorrow, Wednesday August 7th at 2:20 p.m. EDT, we will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission .
📵 Alerts will occur on TVs and radios, not cell phones!
While this specific test is for TV and radio there are many other ways to get alerts, including wireless phone alerts, mailing lists, apps & text.
✅ Find out what types of alerts your local authorities use and make sure you're getting them today.
