Today, April 5 between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., Prince George’s County along with 20 jurisdictions (including the City of College Park) within the National Capital Region will test the Wireless Emergency Alerts System (WEA). Your phone will buzz (loudly) and a test text message will appear. It is only a test, no cause for alarm.
Prince George’s County residents and visitors will receive the following message: “A test of the Prince George’s County Emergency Alert System. No action required.” The alert triggers a loud noise while displaying the text message on cell phones and mobile devices. You may receive more than one WEA message.
