Your Phone Will Make A Loud Noise Saturday Morning in D.C.

June 20, 2019

If you’re near the National Mall on Saturday, your phone will make a loud noise and receive a text message.

Between 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., Mayor Muriel Bowser and her administration will be testing the District’s wireless emergency alerts system in advance of the July 4 festivities.

The testing will ensure the city has “reliable methods and systems that will deliver urgent alerts and warnings to the public.”
