The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), has delayed the nationwide test of the nationwide test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) to the backup date of October 3, 2018 due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane Florence. FEMA will conduct an emergency test of IPAWS with a nationwide test text message being sent to all mobile phones at 2:18 p.m. and a radio and television alert being sent out at 2:20 p.m.
