Wireless Emergency Alerts System TestDuring an emergency, we are committed to providing you critical life-saving information and need to test delivering urgent alerts/warnings to the public. On Thursday, April 5, between 10 - 11 am, the District of Columbia is one of twenty jurisdictions in the National Capital Region conducting a regional test of the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) system. This WEA test supports the continued use, training and improvement of this system.
