You’re going to want to put this on your calendar. On October 4th at about 2:20 p.m. Eastern, there will be a nationwide emergency alert test. So you don’t freak out, here’s where you’ll hear it: on your cell phone, TV, and radio. FEMA and the FCC are doing the drill to test the Emergency Alert System and the Wireless Alert System. In the event of a real and serious emergency, these will warn and give directions, which is why the drill is necessary. The test will include a message in English and Spanish that says "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed." There is nothing you need to do when you hear the test. But you’ll want to put it on the calendar so you don’t get a massive jump scare.
