US – A alert will spark across the US today in a test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System on Tuesday.
FEMA regularly tests the public alert and warning systems to assess the operational readiness of the supporting infrastructure. The tests also help identify any needed technological and administrative improvements to the systems.
“THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” will come across phones, unless they are opted out of the system. The language will also be translated based on the settings on your phones.
