Written by meadecounty. Posted in Government, Special Events, Updates

FEMA and FCC will conduct an IPAWS Test on Wednesday, October 4, 2023.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a national test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) on Oct. 4, 2023.

The test will reach millions of mobile phones across the country via Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), radio and television via the Emergency Alert System (EAS), and other communication pathways.

The test will occur at approximately 2:20 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2023. The backup testing date is Oct. 11.

The national test will help ensure that Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) and the Emergency Alert System (EAS) continue to be effective ways to warn the public about emergencies, particularly those on the national level.

All major U.S. wireless providers participate in Wireless Emergency Alerts and will transmit the national test to their subscribers.

You should receive the national test if your mobile phone is on and within range of an active cell tower from a participating wireless provider. Wireless providers will transmit the national test for 30 minutes, but your phone should only receive it once.
