Wireless Emergency Alert Test
February 22, 2019
On March 4th, 2019 from 10:00-10:30 AM, The City of Dallas Office of Emergency Management will conduct a live test of the Wireless Emergency Alert system. In the event of severe weather or other significant event, the test will be scheduled for a backup date of March 8th, 2019 at 10:00 AM.
Our target test area is cell towers located within the Central Business District. We expect that some individuals outside of the Central Business District will receive the alert due to bleed over.
This will be the first live test of the system since the City of Dallas became an Alerting Authority under the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System, which includes the Wireless Emergency Alert system.
