The IPAWS National Test
September 17, 2018
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless
Emergency Alerts (WEA) on the backup date of October 3, 2018 due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane
Florence. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m.
I think it would be interesting to get an informal poll here about this test. Did you get anything? Was the message clear? did your friends wonder what was going on? etc...
