National Emergency Alert and WEA test

August 11, 2021 @ 14:00 - 14:30

FEMA and FCC Plan Nationwide Emergency Alert Test for Aug. 11 Test Messages Will be Sent to TVs and Radios Along with Select Cell Phones That Have Opted-in to Receive Test Messages

Federal authorities have once again scheduled a nationwide test of warning systems. You can read the details in the news release below. I find it interesting they are only testing messaging to cellphones with those who volunteered and signed up for test messages.

We don’t want to intrude into people’s lives unnecessarily, do we? What gets tested works in an emergency, and what doesn’t get tested often does not.
