On April 5th, the City of Laurel Office of Emergency Management will be coordinating with multiple jurisdictions in the National Capital Region to test the Wireless Emergency Alert System.
We feel this test is necessary to ensure the system is capable and has enough capacity to deliver so many alert messages across the region in the event a true need arises.
Be prepared for a loud audible noise on your mobile devices around 10am followed by “This is a TEST of the City of Laurel Alert System. No action is required.”
Remember to keep calm and know that this is just a test!
