Be advised: There is a nationwide emergency alert system test scheduled for 2:20pm EDT on Wednesday, September 27, 2017.

The test will be heard via TV and radio and will last one minute, with the famous multi-frequency alarm tone and informational message, which will identify it as a special national test.

Use this opportunity to make sure your mobile devices receive the message, as this test is identical to how a real emergency message would be delivered.
