PLEASE REMEMBER 2:18 TODAY NATIONWIDE TEST OF Wireless Emergency Alert System.

On Wednesday, at 2:18 p.m, almost all the cell phones in the country will go off in the first nationwide test of a wireless emergency alert system.

FEMA officials say they expect the alert to reach 75 percent of wireless-enabled devices, including cell phones and smartwatches. The alert will not interrupt a phone call or an active data session, though FEMA and the FTC are working to make sure the information reaches more people.

And even if cell phone users have opted out of other emergency alerts for imminent weather threats or AMBER alerts they should still receive the national-level alert, which is meant to be used in the case of national threats like a nuclear attack or terrorist attacks in multiple cities.

  1. In case you forgot, there’s an election coming up that is more important than what’s in most of the posts of late. Do you support Heath or Culver for Wicomico County Exec.?
