Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System to be Conducted on October 3, 2018

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) and Emergency Alert System (EAS) on the backup date of October 3, 2018 due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane Florence. The WEA portion of the test commences at 11:18 p.m. PT, and the EAS portion follows at 11:20 p.m. PT.

The EAS is a national public warning system that provides the President of the United States with communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency. The test is made available to EAS participants (i.e., radio and television broadcaster, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wireline video providers).

The WEA test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless carriers participating in WEA. The WEA system is used to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones.
