Readers across the U.S. will need to make a note in their calendars for October 4 — specifically at 2:20 p.m. ET (11:20 a.m. PT). That’s when the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be carrying out a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) And Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA).

The point is to ensure both systems are working correctly so that they can alert Americans in the event of a legitimate nationwide emergency. If everything goes according to plan, an alert will be pushed to your TV, radio and phone — and that’s all phones, not just smartphones.
