This includes evacuation notices or shelter-in-place instructions. Again, this is only a test of the emergency alerting system. The system is vital to keep you informed in the event of any emergency situation such as a hurricane, natural, or man-made incident causing a significant disruption to your daily activities. This test will include phone calls, emails, and text messages.
