What should I expect when there is a test alert?

  • Updated

Test alert messages will be identified as such. These messages are intended to “test” the functionality of the system, and build awareness of wireless emergency alerts, and do not require consumers to take steps to secure their safety.

You may be required to acknowledge receipt of the emergency alert to allow for your wireless device to resume normal functioning. If you cannot acknowledge the alert, the alert sound and vibration will continue for 8 seconds. Depending on your specific wireless device, additional reminders may occur.
