The Federal Communication Commission will be conducting a nation-wide test of the National Emergency Notification System on Wednesday, October 3rd at EXACTLY 11:18am. Then the same test will be conducted two minutes later on all regular radio and TV stations at EXACTLY 11:20am. You don’t have to do anything other than watch your screen. There’s no buttons to push or confirmation action to take. When it’s done just go back to what you were doing.
The test is to ensure the information alert got through so if there had been an emergency, information would appear on your cellphone screens. Or if your tuned to a radio or TV station, they would give emergency instructions on what to do.
