Nationwide Emergency Alert Test

Nationwide+Emergency+Alert+Test

On October 4th, 2023 around 2:20 p.m. ET, there will be a regulated nationwide emergency alert test scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. This test will be sent to all cellular devices and will release a vibration sound. Knowing this, even if it is a test, will this disturb millions? The Federal Emergency Management Agency states that they are running this test specifically for a real emergency. The threats that America may face are innumerable, so this test may be a very good chance for the country. This test will work just like an AMBER alert or other weather alerts. The sound will go off, and there will be a notification. The notification will read ‚ÄúTHIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” It will also include a Spanish version. The only downside to this test is that it will last a total of 30 minutes, but the message will only be sent once and if this message does not work or there is an actual emergency, there will be another backup test run the following week. The only concern must be, what will play out tomorrow…

About the Contributor
Mia McKinnon, HS Reporter
Hi, my name is Mia McKinnon and I'm an 11th grader at CSS. I decided to join journalism because I've always loved to read, write, and share the truth with others because I believe that people should know the full picture of everything, good or bad. I will do my best to provide that to the Conrad Howler. My pathway is Physical Therapy, and I enjoy reading about world issues and learning about how to solve them. I look forward to this year in journalism, it will give me and many others the joy and creativity to help people look through a different lens to see another side of the picture the world paints for us.
