WEA/CMAS test to be conducted in NYC on 12/15


Sprint in cooperation with FEMA, the NYC Office of Emergency Management, and other wireless carriers will be conducting a series of tests on December 15th to prepare NYC OEM to start sending emergency messages via the WEA/CMAS system at the beginning of 2012.

Tests will be conducted throughout the 5 boroughs and will be received by any CMAS capable device that has had the software activated. 

If you receive one of these test messages, there is no action to take, this is only an exercise to ensure the system is ready from NYC OEM's perspective so that they are able to push forward with their production implementation.
