FEMA Cell Phone Message : Wed 2:18 PM EDT

Postby Crocaneers » Tue Oct 02, 2018 9:22 am

On Wednesday at 2:18 EDT EVERY SINGLE Cell phone will get this message. Please be ready, I can't imagine what schools will do:

The test was originally planned for September 20, 2018 but has been postponed until 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. EDT. The test will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed.
